What to Expect
Front Street, Lahaina
This Banyan Tree was planted in April, 1873, and marked the 50th Anniversary of Christian missionary work in Lahaina. The tree was imported from India and was only 8 feet tall. It now stands over 60 feet high, has 12 major trunks in addition to a huge core. It stretches over a 200-foot area and shades 2/3 of an acre. Caring members of the community carefully maintain the symmetrical shape of the Banyan Tree. It is one of the largest Indian Banyan trees in the world.
Park benches surround the outskirts of the square.
Native craft demonstrations and fairs are occasionally held in the square.
DO NOT climb on the tree or its branches.
