Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 29, 1962):
Long the residence of Maui kings and chiefs, Lahaina preserves the atmosphere of a mid-19th century Hawaiian seaport, when it was a favorite port of call for American whalers. It was also the center of missionary activities.

Condition:
A large number of improvements are made in the district without permits, and often wood windows are routinely changed out for vinyl clad windows. There are not enough county inspectors to adequately monitor the district.

See above.
