The Washington Place in Honolulu was built as a dwelling place for a popular American trader named Captain John Dominis. The mansion was erected in 1847, and was made famous when it became the home of Queen Lili?uokalani, the wife of Captain John?s son, John Owen Dominis. The Queen lived in the same mansion for exactly 55 years after her marriage to John Owen in 1862.

Washington Place became the official residence of the Hawaiian Governor for over 160 years and has since played a very essential role in keeping the history of the island especially in the area of politics. In 1999, a foundation was founded that aimed in the preservation of Washington Place, and in 2007, exactly 8 years later, it was recognized as a National Historic Landmark.
