    The Kualoa Plantation Sugarmill was started by Charles Hastings Judd and Samuel Wilder. In 1865 they planted sugarcane and built a steam-powered mill using the most modern machinery from Scotland. This was a first of its kind on Oahu. The mill is associated with a little known tragedy when in 1866, Willy Wilder, the nine year old son of Samuel Wilder, fell into a vat of boiling syrup during processing. He lived a few days in agony before dying from his severe burns. His mother, could no longer endure living at the ranch and moved away. By 1871 the mill was a failing venture due to meager rainfall. The land was too dry to grow sugarcane. In 1870 Wilder deeded his share back to Judd and later made a fortune in inter-island shipping and railroad on Maui and Hawaii.
