The Makawao Cemetery is a serene and historic graveyard located on 3 acres of beautiful grounds near Makawao Town on the Island of Maui. The Makawao Cemetery is a excellent example of an early American “rural” cemetery, distinguished by a park-like setting, and a multitude of ornately carved tombstones
The Makawao Cemetery is descended from the “Foreign Church” that occupied the property from 1861 to 1889 and where its founding minister, the Reverend Jonathan Green, and his wife are buried. There is a rich history of people resting at the Makawao Cemetery, many of whom played a significant role in what Maui has become.
The cemetery is owned and managed by the Makawao Cemetery Association.
The mission of the Makawao Cemetery Association is to ensure quality perpetual care of the Makawao Cemetery, to preserve its history, and to provide a tranquil final resting place for all faiths.
