The Anna Ranch Heritage Center traces its roots back to 1848 when James Fay and his Hawaiian wife, Ka?ipukai, purchased the property. Their child, Mary Ka?alaFay married and her descendants became the succeeding and premier contributors to the ranching legacy in the state.
One of these descendants was Anna Leialoha Lindsey Perry-Fiske who was born in 1900. She was born and raised in the ranging lifestyle of the early 20th century. It was here that she learned to ride, rope, tend cattle and mend fences at an early age. She also managed to master the decorum and etiquette that were expected in young ladies during her time.
When her father died, Anna managed the family ranch. Even until her death, she oversaw its operation. Today, visitors to the ranch can tour the historic home and take a look at its gift shop and gardens. They can also shop for fresh produce at the Farmer?s Market where local produce such as crafts, flowers, and prepared foods are offered.
The site also serves as a stunning venue for special events like weddings and receptions.
