David Malo's house was near the junction of Prison Road and Wainee Street. Malo, educated at Lahainaluna Seminary as an adult, was the first renowned Hawaiian scholar and philosopher. His account of the ancient culture, Hawaiian Antiquities, has become a classic and is considered one of the most important early books written in the Hawaiian language. Bitter about "white people's" increasing control of Hawaii, Malo asked to be buried "above the tide of the foreign invasion"; his grave site is on top of Mount Ball (Paupau), above the school. David Malo Day is celebrated annually at Lahainaluna High School.
