There’s No Other Historical Landmark In Hawaii Quite Like This 146-Year-Old Tree

Nestled between the West Maui mountains and the shimmering Pacific on the northwestern shore of Maui, Lahaina is one of Hawaii’s greatest seaside towns and the original seat of Hawaiian royalty. The town was often considered Kamehameha the Great’s historically famous “royalty playground,” and is now full of old world architecture from the town’s plantation era. It is also home to several incredible historic landmarks, including the most famous tree in the Aloha State.
