The Legend of Abandoned Haunted School in Hawaii
If you hang out with Maui residents long enough, you’ll hear some great ghost stories, like the scary ones about nightmarchers.
The old high school near Paia town is the setting for one of the most popular stories on the island. It’s about students and teachers from long ago who keep coming back to take back the area.
Old Maui High School
In the countryside of Hamakuapoko, there is a pretty building’s skeleton. It is all by itself, and the nature around it is trying very hard to take back the land. When the first missionaries and sugarcane plantation owners came to Maui, they wanted to build a school for their children to go to because it was so far away.
They built Old Maui High in 1913, giving young people in the area more chances. After the school moved out of the building in 1972, it slowly fell into disrepair and was left empty. Some parts of the building have stood the test of time, like the pillars and walls. Other parts, like the library being taken over by a banyan tree, have given in to the power of nature.
In Hawaii, though, people believe that the spirits of people who have died will always return to places they knew in a past life. People who live there will tell you this is true about Old Maui High. People say that the students and staff of the school still walk around the grounds and sometimes talk to the living.
People in the area still talk about the old high school grounds. There are stories about ghosts that choke people who step on the land and sounds of a crying girl in what used to be the school’s bathroom.
The shadowy corners of Old Maui High, where the building is barely standing, have become the perfect place for stories about ghosts and hauntings. Events like Haunted Mayhem have made the place a great place to spend a Halloween evening.
