An updated edition with the original text and pictures, plus a chapter on the August 2023 wildfire and its immediate aftermath.
Lahaina, the little town on Maui’s shore that has seen it all . . .
The Story of Lahaina tells the history of this amazing little town, surviving and thriving through all the eras of Hawaiian history. It has been the home of ancient chiefs, the Hawaiian Kingdom’s capital, a favorite stop for whaling ships, a plantation community and a tourist destination. Filled with stories of people and events as well as vintage images—the first map of Lahaina, kings and missionaries, cane fields and Front Street. And finally, the wildfire that destroyed so much of the town and killed some 100 residents, leaving survivors to draw on their strength and resiliency to rebuild their lives and their town.
