Alfred Hocking House (A.K.A. Graystones)
This historic house was completed in 1904 and built for the family of Alfred Hocking, founder of the Honolulu Brewing and Malting Company. This company was the island's first truly successful, local brewery and the original brewery building on Queen Street is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Hocking was born in England, spent time in the Northern High Plains, and eventually came to Hawaii where he worked in lumber and sugar before opening the brewery -- the large Queen Anne house speaks to the brewery's success.
