Queen Emma originally owned the land where the Marketplace and the Waikiki Town Center now reside. The International Marketplace
was founded in 1956, with the building of the Dagger Bar and Bazaar buildings. The Banyan Tree, which is the centerpiece of the marketplace, was once a tree house that owner Ernest Gantt lived in. Ernest Gantt might better be known as Don the Beachcomber.
