Final Thought…
Halloween will soon be here and with it, comes ghosts, goblins and other chilling creatures. There are many neighborhoods across the island chain that are home to scary myths and legends, but arguably, none is spookier than Mānoa.

For centuries, generations have made this sacred valley their home, from the ancient Hawaiians to Hawai’i’s first Chinese and Japanese immigrants. They lived here and they died here, and some never left, including a murderer who still haunts the Mānoa Tennis Courts. Join us for the next “What School You Went?” audio podcast to learn more. Tennis, anyone?
