Paniolo Preservation Society collects many images of our paniolo from past to present. You can see many of these images when you visit the Paniolo Heritage Center at Pukalani Stables in beautiful Waimea. The bulk of our image archive is now stored and maintained by the University of Hawaii at the North Hawaii Education and Research Center where it is kept in climate-controlled archive facilities to preserve and protect these historical items for future generations.
