Sharing Mana‘o

By KATHY COLLINS ( , For The Maui News

My mother and I spent a lovely hour in her hometown last Saturday, visiting the Makawao History Project. Housed in the old Randy Jay Braun gallery on Makawao Avenue, the exhibit offers a fascinating glimpse into old-time Upcountry, with artifacts and photos dating back to the 1800s. It's an eclectic collection, from The Maui News article about the three Balthazar generations of postmasters, to Haku Baldwin's saddle. An impressive paniolo display dominates the little museum, as it should, given Makawao's long-standing identity as Maui's "cowboy town." But it was the assorted photos and accounts of town life from the 1920s through the '60s that held Mom's attention.
