The Hawaiian Mission Houses Historic Site and Archives includes three restored houses, two of which are the oldest houses in Hawaii, and a research archives which provides a unique glimpse into 19th-century Hawaii both onsite and online.
Cherished family heirlooms collected by the Hawaiian Mission Children’s Society form the core of the curatorial collections at Hawaiian Mission Houses. Each of these objects, generously donated by individuals, families or institutions, has its own story to tell about the early missionaries, who left the comfort and security of their homes in New England to travel to a distant land thousands of miles away. Many of the items in the Museum’s collections survived a five-month journey around Cape Horn. They provide valuable insight into the domestic lives of 19th century Americans. Other pieces crafted locally or received as gifts from Hawaiian royalty or visiting sea captains, combine New England design with the use of Hawaiian materials such as native woods and fibers. Some pieces reflect the lucrative business of the China Trade.
The Hawaiian Mission Houses connects the story of the American Protestant missionaries and their descendants to the history and culture of Hawaii, in order to give present generations of residents and visitors a deeper understanding of, and appreciation for, Hawaii’s rich and complex history.
