Located right on the ocean in Maui, Spreckelsville is a small upscale neighborhood just outside of Paia. The area is famous for windsurfing and kitesurfing, as well as being home to some of Maui's resident celebrities.
Spreckelsville was named after Claus Spreckels, a California sugar refiner who once owned 41,000 acres of Maui land. In 1880, he built a $4 million sugar mill there, which was, at the time, the world's largest and most modern sugar factory.
Back then, the newspapers in Hawaii referred to Claus as "His Majesty Spreckels."
In this view, artist Richard Fields captures the rugged beauty of the area, as some windsurfers can be seen racing along on the right.
