The Waikapu Protestant Church is located on a hill above the village of Waikapu, overlooking the flat lands and the ocean below. The church ruins now consist of the four stone walls of the church. The roof and flooring are gone, as are the windows, doors, and their frames. The ruins of Waikapu Protestant Church are architecturally significant as an example of a nineteenth-century stone church on Maui. This church is one of approximately a dozen such stone churches to remain extant on the island. This church is typical of its period, having been constructed of local materials, including lava rock, coral mortar, and koa wood.
