Includes information about the Iolani Palace on Oahu, the Hulihee Palace on the Big island of Hawaii, a palace that was built but never used as a royal residence, and the country homes of Hawaii's royal families.

Iolani Palace
The Iolani Palace was built in 1882 by King David Kalakaua. His successor, Queen Liliuokalani, lived there until she was deposed in 1893. The building was used as the capitol of the state of Hawaii until 1969, when it was restored and turned into a museum and state historic monument.

Hulihee Palace
The Hulihee Palace was built by Governor John Adams Kuakini in 1838, and until 1916 is was a vacation home for Hawaiian royalty. It is locatedon Alii Drive in Kailua-Kona on the Big island of Hawaii.

Aliiolani Hale
This building in historic downtown Honolulu was originally intended to be the royal palace of King Kamehameha V but it was never used as a royal home.

Queen Emma's Summer Palace
This home summer home of Queen Emma was called "Hanaiakamalama". You can still see it today, just off the Honolulu end of the Pali Highway.

Washington Place
This home in the historic capital district of Honolulu was built by John Dominis and when his son (another John Dominis) married the future Queen Liliuoklanai it was their home. For many years it was used as the Governor's mansion of Hawaii but today it is a museum that can be toured by the public.

Ainahau Estate in Waikiki
Ainahau was the name of the country home built on Waikiki land that was given to Princess Kaiulani when she was born. Ainahau was built by Archibald Cleghorn for his wide Princess Likelike and his daughter Princess Kaiulani. At first it was a country home but eventually it became their full-time home. Ainahau was eventually sold to land investors and it was torn down in 1955 to make room for the Princess Kaiulani Hotel.
