Maui History

Maui was named after a mythological being who pulled the island from under the sea with his giant fishhook.

In 1790, after a fierce battle in Iao Valley, King Kamehameha took control of Maui and made Lahaina the new capital of the unified Hawaiian Kingdom. For nearly five decades, Lahaina served as the center of government for Hawaii. Simultaneously, the town experienced a surge in its whaling industry. At the height of the whaling era as many as 500 ships anchored in Lahaina’s port.

Maui has many historical places of interest that shouldn’t be missed. From ancient myths to its booming whaling era, Maui’s rich history will add a fascinating new dimension to your visit.

You should also read about the history of Hawaii and how Hawaii became the 50th state, the Hawaiian people and their rich culture.
