About This Tour

Well before 1959, when Hawaii became the most recent U.S. state, Hawaiian King Kamehameha III made Honolulu his permanent capital in the 1840s. His successors ruled here for half a century, until a new government that represented the territorial interests of the United States overthrew them. This tour focuses on the history of Honolulu from the early 19th century on, from the time it was ruled by Hawaiian royalty to its days as a U.S. territory and state.
