Palapalo Ho'omau Church, Southwest Maui
The famed aviator, Charles Lindbergh, lived his last days on the lush Hana coast. Today he lies at rest on the serene grounds of the Palapala Ho'omau Church in beautiful Kipahulu. The limestone coral church, built in 1857, still stands here. Lindbergh's grave is under the shade of a Java plum tree.
Before he died, he sketched a simple design for his grave and his coffin. Charles Lindbergh died on August 26, 1974.
The Palapala Ho'omau Church is located 8 miles south of Hana on the ocean side of the highway. A small road just past Mile Marker #41 leads to the church.
