Statement of Significance (as of designation - March 29, 2007):
Originally constructed 1844-47, Washington Place symbolizes the westernization and Americanization of the Hawaiian Islands. Located near Iolani Palace, also a National Historic Landmark, Washington Place was the home of the last reining monarch of the Hawaiian kingdom, Queen Lili’oukalani, from her marriage to John O. Dominis in 1862 to her death in 1917. During that period, Hawaiian society merged with American society and Hawaiian self-determination gave way to United States control. Washington Place also is significance as the home of the Territorial Governors from 1918 to 1959, and after Hawaii became the 50th State of the Union, the State Governor’s Mansion from 1959 to 2002.
