Celebrations to Honor Historic Wailuku Courthouse

WAILUKU, Maui (KHNL) - The historic Wailuku Courthouse is celebrating its 100 years of service. 

The centennial celebration will begin November 14 at 4:45 p.m. at the courthouse on High Street.  The event will feature a program, light refreshments and music by Kahala Greig.

On November 15 at 11 a.m., a lighthearted birthday commemoration will be held at the Kaahumanu Church across from the courthouse.  The public is invited to enjoy complimentary cake and Hawaiian music.

The old Wailuku Courthouse was built in 1907. 

A $1.8 million restoration and renovation project was completed in 1993, adding central air conditioning and an elevator.

Through the years, the building was occupied by a number of judges, including the Honorable George Fukuoka, Kase Higa and Arthur Ueoka.

The courthouse now houses the County's Department of Prosecuting Attorney.
