Lahaina is a charming town of rich historical significance. As the FORMER CAPITAL OF THE KINGDOM OF HAWAI‘I, Lahaina boasts 62 HISTORIC SITES — all easily accessible on LAHAINA HISTORIC TRAIL. Look for the bronze plaques affixed throughout 55 acres of Lahaina, and set off on your journey to the past.

En route, you’ll see designated NATIONAL HISTORIC LANDMARKS around and down Front Street. Points of interest include: WO HING MUSEUM, LAHAINA JODO MISSION BUDDHIST TEMPLE and THE BALDWIN HOME, the former residence of Protestant missionaries, circa the 1830s.
