Baldwin Home Museum

The Baldwin Home Museum is a restored missionary house in Lahaina. It was built in 1835 for the missionaries but became primarily the residence of Reverand Dwight Baldwin and his wife Charlotte (and their seven children). Reverand Baldwin was a missionary but also had studied medicine at Harvard. His training medical training helped enormously in the islands as the natives had no natural immunity to the illnesses Westerners brought along with them.
