Beneath its serene air Idyllic Woodside Estate has its roots in fierce ambition and success. In 1924, the creative Californian shipping magnate, Captain William Matson, and his wife Lillie Low purchased the property as a summer home for their family. Matson, founder of Matson Navigation Company in 1882, went on to initiate a number of ingenious precedents: the first ship with electricity, first ship with cold storage, first with a radio, and first powered by steam. Currently, Matson Navigation Company is a prominent leader in Pacific shipping.
