Lots of cool history and some artifacts to look at.

Just behind the Banyan tree is the courthouse. It has some whaling artifacts and also some courthouse artifacts.

If you are into Island history this is pretty cool. Not much here but some old ruins and plaque to read on the history. Just a walking stop while your in the area. Worth a picture and the read to understand some Maui history

A VERY informative and realistic record of the past. Pictures and comments on this part of the island are fascinating. The care taken to preserve this history is very good. Good place for the whole family, children should be fascinated in the relics and pictures. Gift shop has something for everyone.

This is a DO NOT MISS spot. Once can really soak up the history, the geography and increase understanding of the local wild-life. The gift shop is to die for, so much to see .... and purchase. Local artists lend a huge plus to the site.

The remains of the original courthouse have some history of the area. This is near the big Banyan tree and the marina. It's worth a stop on your walk in the area.

In the banyan tree square remains the old Courthouse, along with partial coral walls remaining of an old structure. There is a museum and a gift shop in the Courthouse.

This is near the harbor and an interesting and photogenic spot to see. It is an old fort and the plaque on the front of the stone tells of its history. Located along the harbor are rows of canons once used to protect the town.

I really like the variety of the businesses and attractions in the place. Met one artist in on of the art shops and bought a great whale jumping out of the water picture. They drop shipped it home to us too. Lots of art and local artists creations of high quality. Fun place to go!
