Lahaina Court House

Lahaina Court House Review

The Lahaina Arts Society and the Lahaina Heritage Museum occupy this charming old government building in the center of town that recently opened a massive exhibit about Lahaina's history. Wander among the terrific displays, pump the knowledgeable museum staff for interesting trivia, and ask for the walking-tour brochure covering historic Lahaina sites. There's also a theater with a rotating array of films about everything from whales to canoes. The nonprofit Lahaina Town Action Committee, which oversees Lahaina's attractions, can be found here as well. Erected in 1859 and restored in 1999, the building has served as a customs and court house, governor's office, post office, vault and collector's office, and police court. On August 12, 1898, its postmaster witnessed the lowering of the Hawaiian flag when Hawaii became a U.S. territory. The flag now hangs above the stairway. There's a public restroom in the building.
