Long Description:
The sign is part of the Lahaina Historic Trail. The building is located at the southeast corner of the intersection of Dickenson and Luakini. In 2015, the building is home to The Village Galleries.

The sound of children laughing and singing once filled this building, the site of the Lahaina Kindergarten which was privately operated by the Baldwin family. At one time it was the only kindergarten in town and was free to the public. Children attended the school for 1/2 days in the mornings. They were given a snack of milk and crackers at mid-morning and returned home at lunch time. Community organizations like the boy scouts used the buildings for meetings after school and in the evening. Lahaina's legendary kumu hula, Aunty Emma Sharpe, conducted classes here at night. The kindergarten closed in the 1960s.
