Historic Keawala’i Church Virtual Tour

I was in Maui a couple of weeks ago and have long admired the small historic church in the Makena area of Southwest Maui. The Keawala‘i Congregational Church in Mākena was founded in 1832 as the Church of Honua‘ula. It was originally built out of pili grass. It was eventually rebuilt as a stone-wood building. Church members living near the beach gathered coral rocks for the making of the puna or cement, and those residing on the “forest side” brought down the lumber. You can find out more about the history on the church website. Here is the Google Virtual Tour:
