Honolulu County (officially known as the City and County of Honolulu,
formerly Oahu County) consists of the island of Oahu, and the entire Hawaiian
Archipelago northwest of Kauai County except the Midway Islands, which are
not part of the State of Hawaii. Honolulu County includes the overwhelming
majority of the state's population. It is also the nation's longest county,
extending over 1300 miles from Kure to the southeastern tip of Oahu.
Kalawao County, 1905,
County Coordinator: Maggie Stewart
Kalawao County consisted of Father Damien's famous Molokai Leper Colony
which, due to the nature of the disease, allowed no contact with the
outside world and required a separate, independent county administration,
which was mostly merged into Maui County in the 1970's and 1980's.
Now that Hansen's Disease (Leprosy) is treatable, the Colony is closing
and becoming Kalaupapa National Historic Park. This county does still
officially exist, however, and is the nation's smallest in area, at 13
square miles, and in population, currently around 60.
