The Lufkin Residence is a two-story concrete and clapboard-sided house with a gabled roof. Construction was completed in early 1924, and the structure has a raised H-shape floor plan. The structure features a poured-concrete foundation which was a modern construction technique new to Maui during the early 1900s. The Lufkin Residence is significant for its association with the development of High Street. It is also significant for its associations with the prominent banking and business family of Charles and Frank Lufkin and as a representative of the upper echelons and the newly emerged merchant class in Wailuku during the period.
