Front Street – Lahaina Maui

At the Baldwin House I learned how the Robber Barons of the late 1800’s took over all the Islands by force, so they could make their fortunes. They tried to exterminate the Hawaiians and remove all their cultural aspects. All the Royal Buildings were destroyed. 

Lahaina became a whaling town. 

Now it is pure entertainment, the sunsets are brilliant.
