Russian Fort Elizabeth
Highway 50
Waimea, Kauai, Hawaii 96796
Voice: 800-262-1400

Russian Fort Elizabeth is located at the mouth of the Waimea River on Highway 50. Since the first ships like Captain Cook in 1778 visited the island it was soon known for its fishing and farming community. In the next one hundred years the west began to visit this island and soon the Russian-American Company recognized the Waimea bay for its safe anchorage. In 1816 Fort Elisabeth was built to set up a base of operations for trading. It was not long before the whaling ships used this area as a whaling port.

Today Fort Elizabeth is pretty much gone. It is just an overgrown area that you can see the earth raised, but the history is still here. You can walk around this area and try to imagine what it would have been like back in the early 1800's. It is a shame that we continue to fail to keep the historical places in better condition.
