Keanae Cemetery and Church (2006)

The Keanae Congregational Church and its cemetery, on the Keanae Peninsula, Maui. The lava rock church, built in 1860, was the only building left standing after a tsunami inundated the Keanae Peninsula in 1946. The cemetery has tombstones in the Asian/Hawaiian style, some of which have photographs of the deceased. A young boy’s grave is in the foreground. His family has decorated it with his favorite toys and clothes.
