Historic Hale: Makawao Union Church

Standard

Built in 1916, this iconic place of worship is nestled on Baldwin Avenue in between Makawao and Pa’ia.  It’s intricate stone exterior and carefully curated stained glass windows take you a walk down a lane from another era. It holds a place on the National Register of Historical Places and is a memorial for Henry Perrine Baldwin. The grounds are lovely, the people are friendly and the visual & spiritual experiences are unforgettably   melodic.
