Hilo is a coastal city in the U.S state of Hawaii. Earlier in 1800, missionaries came to the city and founded several churches. Later, it expanded inland in 1960 as sugar plantations. Although it was destroyed much after the tsunami in 1946 and 1960, the city recovered and developed to become a known city in the Hawaiian Island. It is now the largest community on the island of Hawai'i and the county seat of Hawai'i County. It is also the second largest city in Hawaii.
