Makiki

Situated in the valleys that extend into the Ko’olau Mountains north of Downtown Honolulu, Makiki rests against the backdrop of the scenic Tantalus area and the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. An older and well-established neighborhood, Makiki consists of two distinct areas: Makiki and Makiki Heights.

About Makiki

The childhood home of Barack Obama, Makiki gained recognition on July 11, 1842 when Punahou School opened its doors to educate missionary children. Located near the site of the Kapunahou water spring, the school was made possible by a 200-acre land grant provided by Governor Boki. Barack Obama is an alumni of the school, as are several members of the Hawaiian royal family. Located northwest of Downtown Honolulu, Makiki stretches east to west from Punahou Street to Pensacola Street and north to south from Round Top Drive/Makiki Heights Drive to Lunalilo Freeway. While the neighborhood consists mostly of older homes, smaller apartment buildings and side streets, major roadways include Pensacola Street, Punahou Street, Nehoa Street, Pi’ikoi Street and Wilder Avenue.
