Our guide had so much to tell us of the history of Grove Farm that he gave us over two hours. The Wilcox family descended from missionaries, worked hard, adapted to conditions, had simple frugal habits, cared for their workers and prospered. Two spinster sisters lived until recent years in the homestead, retaining its simplicity. Grew their own food for the table, composted, cared for the land. appreciated local artifacts and written history. Served iced tea and simple homemade refrigerator cookies to callers. Descendants who have received shares in a corporate trust are still parceling out their land holdings and trying to have it put to worthy purposes. Local hospital, churches, preserving this homestead and their parents mission home in Hanalei, the latest shopping center in Lihue, a planned community during the next two decades near, etc. Interesting family history. The homestead is a place of peace and grace.
