Detailed Description

"Stuck-in-Irons House"


187 Prison Street, Lahaina

808-667-1985


This prison dates back to the early 1850's and was built by convict laborers with coral stone from the demolished waterfront fort. It had wall shackles and restraints for difficult prisoners. Those to be jailed for more than a year were shipped to O'ahu. However, the prison mostly housed ship deserters, drunks, reckless horse riders and violators of the Sabbath.

A breadfruit tree called Ulu Kau Heana, planted in the days of Chief Kakaalanaeo, still thrives on the property by the prison. This tree is also known as the "Hanging Tree".
