The Daughters maintain and operate two palaces to promote the history and culture of Hawai`i.

Queen Emma Summer Palace    Hulihe`e Palace    Members Section
  The Daughters of Hawai`i was founded in 1903 by seven daughters of American Protestant missionaries.

Born in Hawai`i, they were citizens of the Hawaiian Kingdom before annexation, and foresaw the inevitable loss of much of the Hawaiian culture. They founded the organization "to perpetuate the memory and spirit of old Hawai`i and of historic facts, and to preserve the nomenclature and correct pronunciation of the Hawaiian language."

Queen Emma Summer Palace
The summer retreat of Queen Emma, wife of King Kamehameha IV is preserved by the Daughters of Hawai`i in a charming Hawaiian-Victorian setting.  Palace admission is $ 6 for adults and $ 1 for children.

Hulihe`e Palace
Situated on Ali'i Drive in Kailua-Kona, Hulihe`e Palace was the vacation residence of Hawaiian royalty. Today it is a museum operated by the Daughters of Hawai`i and is a showplace of beautiful furniture and fascinating artifacts.
