As one might infer from this plaque, the pieces of the lighthouse were built in France. The instruction manual for the light was written in French, which posed a problem to the construction workers who assembled it on Kauai; none of them spoke that language! A translator had to be shipped in from Honolulu to help them interpret the instructions.
