The residence of the Governor of Hawaii is called what?
A. Iolani Palace
B. Kamehameha Hall
C. Washington Place
D. Aliiolani Hale
King Kamehameha's statue is at the front of Iolani Palace, across King Street from Iolani Palace. Iolani Palace was home to Hawaii's last two Monarchs, but is not the place where Hawaii's Governor lives. There is no hall named for Hawaii's first King. Constructed in 1846 and named for the first President of the United States, Washington Place was the home of the Dominus family. Queen Liliuokalani was married to John Owen Dominus and lived at Washington Place following the overthrow of the monarchy. It is located across Beretania Street from the State Capitol, making it a convenient as well as historic home for Hawaii's Governor. Aliiolani Hale is the Supreme Court building.
