Ali'iolani Hale, Hawaii Supreme Court, Old Courthouse Museum, & statue of King Kamehameha I, Honolulu Photos

Ali'iolani Hale (1874) designed by Thomas Rowe is now home to the Hawaii Supreme Court and a judiciary history center in the Old Courthouse. It sits across a street facing 'Iolani Palace and is one of the most photographed buildings in the state because its lawn is the site of the statue of King Kamehameha I. Ali'iolani Hale was originally designed as a palace but was built as government offices. It is a site of an 1893 proclamation which removed the Monarchy and effectively made Hawaii an American Territory.
