Old Lahaina Courthouse

The Old Lahaina Courthouse is located at the Banyan Tree Park in Lahaina and to be completely honest, it was the Banyan trees that got our attention and pointed us in the direction of the Courthouse.

The Lahaina Courthouse opened in 1860 as a customs house for whaling and trade ships as well as government offices and court functions during the Monarchy period. In 1925 the Courthouse was rebuilt with a new gabled roof, entrance and second floor balcony in this Greek Revival architectural style. The County of Maui funded a major restoration the Old Lahaina Courthouse in 1998 and the building is now home to the Lahaina Visitor Center, Arts Society galleries and the Lahaina Town Action Committee offices.
