  • Interesting and historic. It's a short walk from Front Street. Many of the famous Hawaiian people are buried here.  more »
  • Waiola Cemetary is listed on the walking tour billboards throughout historical Lahaina town. This is a well-tended and well-loved graveyard with significant historical roots of royalty and Hawai’ian.....  more »
  • The churchyard at Waiola Church is the final resting place for most of the Hawaiian Royal Family and is widely recognized as Maui's first church. Queen Keopuolani was baptized at Waiola on September 16, 1823. I have been attending Waiola whenever I'm on island since the early nineties. Although I live 2600 miles away and seldom visit more than once a year, Waiola has always made me feel like ohana (family). Aside from its rich heritage and historical importance to Maui, Waiola Church is an integral part of Lahaina's present -- providing both spiritual guidance and cultural insight to all who visit.
  • It is a beautiful place of history, heritage and Hawaiian royalty. Sept 16, 196 yrs ago queen Keopūolani died and became a christian. This we celebrate her life as our queen of Hawaii nei.
