WAILUKU – Old Maui High – the first modern public high school on the island and the place that molded a young Patsy Takemoto Mink into a national leader of women’s rights – has been nominated to the State and National Registers of Historic Places.
With volunteers clearing away wreckage left by vandals and a fire, including the crumbling roof, the Old Maui High School’s administration building, designed by famed architect Charles W. Dickey, remains structurally sound and ready for restoration. Papers have been completed to nominate the school to the State and National Registers of Historic Places. Supporters of the project hope to restore the exterior and modernize the interior.
