In 1830 the Rev. John Williams chose the picturesque village of Leone on the island of Tutuila to be his landing place. This historic area, located on a white-sand beach in a small bay, eventually became the center of Christianity in what is now American Samoa. Also located in the village is a monument to John Williams.
There is a road next to the Catholic Church which leads 1.5 miles to the refreshing Leone Falls. At the base of the falls is a freshwater pool which is ideal for swimming. Due to religious observances, the falls are closed on Sundays.
