320 South Beretania Street, Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii
Built in 1847, this Greek-revival estate was initially home to Captain John Dominis, an American merchant seaman. However, it’s most famous for being the home of Queen Liliuokalani, (Hawai‛i’s last reigning monarch) after she married Captain Dominis’ son, John Owen Dominis. After the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy, the Queen was arrested here and later imprisoned at Iolani Palace. She returned to Washington Palace after serving her sentence, and it was here in the first floor bedroom that she died in 1917. The Queen intended for the palace to be used, after her death, as a place where Hawaiian language and music would be preserved and passed on to future generations. Today, the Washington Palace Foundation continues to carry on the legendary Hawaiian Queen’s final wish.
