Chinese legacy and history in the state of Hawaii is preserved through the Wo Hing Society Hall located in the historic district of Lahaina in the state of Hawaii. Built in 1912, this two-storey structure served as a place where Chinese immigrants, who worked in Hawaii sugar plantations during the 19th century, congregated and formed a Chinese society in order to provide mutual aid, financial, religious and political help, as well as a sense of community.

Wo Hing when translated means ?harmony and prosperity?. The building also used Feng Shui for its construction, with the entrance facing the ocean and its back to the mountains. After falling into disuse in the 1940s, the building was restored during the 1980s. The building now serves as a small museum. It was listed to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
