Visiting the old and preserved buildings.
Walking and visiting old buildings and churches brings a feeling of what life could be for regular people in the years long before they were born.
The famous Palapala Ho’omau Church was built in 1864. However, many residents started moving to the island’s other side to work in the sugarcane and pineapple industries by 1940. Unfortunately, the years of rain and wind-worn down the structure of the church, and the building started to get covered with plants and engulfed with insects, leaving it to destruction.
In 1964, Sam Pryor decided to restore this piece of history. People of Hana who took kept the original assets and structure safe in their homes returned with the replica of the original brass church bell and candle-lit chandeliers.
Sam installed a tainted window showing the Hawaiian Christ wrapped in a yellow and red cape as the highest-ranking chiefs wore.
The first service was held on Thanksgiving in 1965. Those residents and their ancestors still live in the area.
The famous Pu’u O Kahala hill.
Built-in the early 1960s, Pu’u O Kahala hill is the most prominent landmark in Hana. It is made in honor of Paul Irving Fagan, from his wife. He saved the rural community of Hana by introducing ranching as a feasible industry. Later, he shaped Hana’s hospitality industry and Maui as a tourist destination by inaugurating the first hotel in road to Hana. This was a six-room hotel with a fantastic view of the ocean named Kau’iki after Kau’iki Hill. This became a landmark where Queen Ka’ahumanu was born.
We often recommend our guests who want to experience something extraordinary to spend some substantive time there. In other words, spending a night or two in Hana’s oldest hotel. That way, you can wake up and visit the world-famous pools at Oheo Gulch in the Kipahulu section of Haleakalā National Park.
If a relaxing vacation is one of your goals, we don’t think you will find many places where the lifestyle is laid back.
Allow the experienced guide to Maui to drive for you, where everyone in your group gets to take in the scenery. Most importantly, you don’t have to worry about your time in order to avoid driving back in the dark.
