Mission House Museum, Honolulu Photos

The Mission House Museum comprises three original missionary buildings on a complex settled in 1820. The Oldest Frame House (1821) came precut from Boston by ship around Cape Horn. It is furnished as it would have been at that era. The Chamberlain House (1831) was built of coral blocks and lumber salvaged from ships as designed by the mission's quartermaster Levi Chamberlain. The Print House (1841) exhibits a printing press of the era and early materials printed in the Hawaiian language.
