The county clerk is asking for the public’s assistance to help gather artifacts and materials that tell the history of the County of Maui government.

Materials that relate to the history of all county departments and divisions, or divisions that may have existed in the past, will be accepted.

“Old photographs, artifacts, documents, materials and personal belongings help us to remember our past, preserve the memories and keep our history alive” said County Clerk Danny Mateo. “Maui County was established in 1905. There’s 112 years of rich history and memories just waiting to be shared.”

A few of the of items collected to date include old police badges, photographs of government officials and facilities, and tools historically used by the Fire and Police Departments.

Items loaned to the county will be used to document history and may be featured in the display cases in the lobby of the Council Chambers on the 8th floor of the county building.


The county clerk says it will be accepting items on an ongoing basis until the end of the year.


Anyone that may have artifacts can contact the county clerk directly at [email protected] or call 808-270-7825.
