Painful History

The abandoned wool manufacturing plant of Williamson-Balfour Company bears witness to the island's painful history. From Chile's annexation of Easter Island in the late 19th century Rapa Nui natives were interned in the town of Hanga Roa while the rest of the island was turned into a vast sheep ranch. Only in 1966 did the locals receive full Chilean citizenship.
