A historical Hawaiian place in Wailuku
Mele taught private ‘ukulele lessons, public ‘ukulele workshops, and Hawaiian history from 2011-2018 at Hale Ho’ike’ike at the Bailey House in Wailuku, Maui. The Bailey House was the perfect place for visitors and local residents alike to experience a unique Hawaiian cultural experience learning to play Hawai’i’s official instrument, the ‘ukulele, from a Native Hawaiian in a historical Hawaiian setting.
Built in 1833, the Bailey House was home of missionary teacher Edward Bailey and his family. It now houses the largest collection of Hawaiian artifacts in Maui County and is run by the Maui Historical Society, the oldest historical and preservation society on Maui. “The name Hale Ho’ike’ike – a house to display, exhibit or demonstrate – was suggested by David Kahanamoku and was felt to be most appropriate by early members of the Maui Historical Society. Its meaning is: “House, building or museum, to display collections of objects of interest, art, crafts or works of history.”
The location is 2375A Main Street in historic Wailuku town. It is open Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and there is a cost for admission. Call 808-244-3326.
