Community Connection: Maui Historical Society / Bailey House Museum

The Maui Historical Society is a non-profit organization established "to collect, preserve, interpret, and share the history and heritage of Maui". Hale Ho'ike'ike, the Bailey House, was dedicated as a museum on July 6, 1957 and was placed on the National & Hawai'i Register of Historic Places in 1972. Located in Historic Wailuku and built on the site of the royal compound of Kahekili, last ruling chief of Maui. Hale Ho'ike'ike and grounds served as the Central Wailuku Female Seminary for Hawaiian girls from 1832 until 1849, and remained the home of Edward Bailey and his family until 1888. Today, Hale Ho'ike'ike is a museum of Maui history, showcasing Hawaiian artifacts and culture, as well as paintings and furnishings of nineteenth century Maui. It is home of the Maui Historical Society, which also operates an Archival Resource Center, Museum Shop, and the Chas Fisher Memorial Gardens of native and plantation era plants. We are constantly looking for people to come and volunteer, and to become a part of our Maui Historical Society/ Bailey House Museum 'ohana.
