An Article by a DHCA member: " Discovery Harbour - A Piece of the South Point Story"

Discovery Harbour … a good name, a name of historic significance.  It’s located in Waiohinu, near the southernmost point in the United States where the Polynesians discovered Hawaii.

Historians have found historic evidence of settlement at South Point dating to around the year 100 A.D.  A stonewall encompasses the area where the first settlers established a small village; the location is preserved on the National Historic Register.  Nearby are several important archaeological sites from that time: a fishing heiau, burial place, mooring stones, salt pan, and a Palahemo.  The walled fishing heiau is where fishermen left a fish offering to express their thanks for a successful catch.
