Iolani Palace – Heritage Site

Iolani Palace is the lasting remembrance of the Kingdom of Hawaii. This 19th c. historical site was the first palace in the world to have been fashioned with electrical lights, a telephone, flushing toilets, and all materials not obtainable in the islands at the time were shipped across the Pacific Ocean. The story behind this physical structure representing a lost kingdom that was usurped by a handful of American businessmen, is as poignant and as tragic as that of the Native American Indian.
