AAA Editor Notes
Washington Place is at 320 S. Beretania St. across from the state capitol. For 55 years this elegant two-and-a-half-story 1847 Greek Revival mansion was home to Queen Lili‘uokalani. The queen was arrested here in 1895 on the charge of misprision of treason and subsequently was jailed in Iolani Palace for almost a year.
Twelve of Hawai‘i's governors and their families resided within the coral rock- and wood-framed walls of Washington Place from 1922 to 2002.
The galleries on the second floor focus on the queen, the Dominis family and the former resident governors.
