The Wo Hing Museum and Cookhouse is easy to find on Lahaina's Front Street and gives visitors a look into a social meeting hall and cook house that was used by Chinese immigrants.
Back in the mid-1800s, thousands of Chinese came to Maui to work on sugar plantations as well as to build bridges and other infrastructure. In an attempt to maintain their social and political ties with their ancestral home, the Chinese immigrants formed the Wo Hing Society.
The society's goal was to nurture their expat community and support each other which eventually required a meeting hall. Built in 1912 using private donations, the Wo Hing Society built this two story building and used it for meetings, religious gatherings, and other social events.
