Overview

Located in the heart of Wailuku, this 179 year old church is one of the islands oldest. The church was originally a small pili grass thatched roof on the compound of Maui's high chief Kahekili. After Kahekili was beaten by King Kamehameha in the fierce battle at Iao Valley just down the road, the new church was built in 1837 of stone to honor Queen Kaahumanu. Today, the church stands in the hearts of islanders as one of Wailuku's most beloved landmarks. - Lottie Tagupa
