Lahaina's historical walking tour includes 62 historical and cultural sites. This map (which is displayed outside Hale Paahao, site #53) shows you where each site is located.
Most of the sites are located on Front Street and near Lahaina Harbor.
Here's a closer look at the list of Lahaina historic trail sites.
The list continues ...
... and continues. At the end of the list, you'll find the sites from the Old Lahaina Walking Tour.
If you disobeyed the laws in Lahaina, you would've ended up at Hale Paahao ("stuck-in-iron house"). This display shows a picture of the original prison gatehouse.
After walking through the prison gatehouse, you'll find this reconstructed wooden building on the property.
Inside is an example of where the prisoners were kept.
And here's a prisoner! Actually, he's only a mannequin on display, but you get the point.
This plaque displays a list of offenses committed on Maui, Molokai and Lanai for 1855, 1856 and 1857. "Drunkenness" tops the list in 1855 with 330 convictions!
The 1923 Model "T" ford touring car is parked outside Hale Paahao. It's been in Lahaina since Jan. 9, 1924.
A few feet away from the old rusted car is an enormous anchor.
The 60-foot-tall banyan tree (site #15) was planted by Sheriff William Owen Smith to honor the 50th anniversary of Lahaina's first Protestant mission. The LahainaTown Action Committee is planning a banyan tree birthday party for April 25 and 26, 2009.
Next to Banyan Tree Park, you'll find the Lahaina Courthouse (site #14), which was built in 1859, during the reign of Kamehameha IV. The building has pieces from Hale Piula, King Kamehameha III's unfinished coral palace.
Here's a close up of one of the two cannons that were saved from the wreck of a Russian warship in Honolulu Harbor (circa 1816). They were brought to Lahaina to guard the royal capital. Currently, these cannons are located right across the Lahaina Courthouse.
The walls of Lahaina's Old Fort (site # 12) were reconstructed from sand and coral blocks that were cut from the reef about 40 yards offshore.
The historic Pioneer Inn, which opened in 1901, provided the only accommodations on the west side until the early 1960s.
Today, you'll find the Pioneer Inn Grill and Bar in this historic building.
The open-air restaurant is ideal for sipping on a pau hana drink and watching Lahaina's sunset.
You'll find the Pioneer Inn Museum and Marketplace just around the corner from the restaurant.
There's a Hotel Street on Oahu, but apparently, another one off of Front Street on Maui.
The Masters' Reading Room (site #22) was built on May 27, 1834, for the comfort of masters and officers. Today, the lower level serves as an art gallery and gift shop.
The Masters' Reading Room is one of many historical sites that have been restored by the Lahaina Restoration Foundation. Today, some of the rooms are used for community meetings.
The Lahaina Ice Company (site #28) previously stood adjacent to the Pioneer Inn building, which also housed Lahaina Light and Power, and Lahaina Soda Works.
On the other side of the Pioneer Inn Grill and Bar is a Lahaina ice cream parlour—better known as Lappert's Ice Cream.
This ice cream flavor at Lappert's is named after one of Maui's popular roads.
Can you see historical site #27?
In the 14th and 15th centuries, the ancient Hawaiians used the Hauola Stone (site #27) as a birthing stone. Today, the stone chair is believed to have healing powers.
The Lahaina Lighthouse (site #62) was built in 1840 upon King Kamehameha III's request. The Pacific's oldest lighthouse stands near the edge of Lahaina Harbor. It served as a guide for more than 400 whaling ships each year.
Today, Lahaina Harbor is filled with many fishing boats. When I stopped by, this fisherman proudly displayed the 284-lb. marlin he caught.
Beneath the Lahaina Courthouse, you'll find the entrance to the Old Jail Gallery.
In the 1800s, the basement served as a jail for rowdy sailors. Today, it houses paintings by Hawaii's artists.
Prisoners weren't allowed to have much in jail like this fellow here.
Instead of housing prisoners, the old jail cell now displays local artwork behind bars. Not too worry, these paintings aren't locked up. All are available for purchase.
Japanese immigrants came to Lahaina to work the plantation fields. Their influence on the town is reflected in some of the Lahaina's historic sites such as the Hongwanji Mission (site #55).
Outside the Lahaina Hongwanji Mission is a statue of Shinran Shonin, the founder of the Jodo Shinshu Sect of Buddhism.
The Episcopal Cemetery and Hale Aloha (a Protestant Church) are located on Wainee Street, a few blocks away from Front Street in Lahaina.
Several historic grave sites are still adorned with flowers and flags.
Many who are buried here lived in Lahaina during the 1800s.
The grounds around the Epsicopal Cemetery (site #49) and Hale Aloha (site #50) are dotted with plumeria flowers.
