  Hale Pai, the printing house of Lahainaluna Seminary, was founded by Protestant missionaries in 1831.

There was no written form of the Hawaiian language when the missionaries arrived, so to spread the word of God, a missionary committee devised one. Presses in Honolulu and here at Hale Pai soon began printing textbooks and other teaching aids.

The print shop was restored from 1980 to 1982 by the Lahaina Restoration Foundation. The museum is open Monday­Saturday.

Next is the Wo Hing Temple & Museum, back on Front Street.
