U.S. Seaman's Hospital
The king appointed Mexican Joaquin Armas as landlord of the property in exchange for his job of rounding of cattle that would eventually be sold to whaling ships. In 1844, the building was leased to the US government as a hospital to care for sick and wounded sailors. This closed in 1862. After that point the building became a private home as well as a meeting place for civic groups. The Lahaina Restoration Foundation bought the building in 1974.
