The Lucy Kaiewe Searle House sits on a terraced, oceanfront lot that steps down to a seven-foot-high stone seawall and the Pacific Ocean. The single-story, single-wall dwelling is rectangular in plan and features 6″ tongue-and-groove walls. The Lucy Kaiewe Searle House is significant as a fine example of an early twentieth-century, large-scale, single-wall residence. The house is also significant for its associations with Pioneer Mill, the primary economic force in the Lahaina area during the late nineteenth and first half of the twentieth century.
