Established in the 1920’s on the 100th anniversary of arrival of Christian Missionaries in Hawaii, the Hawaiian Mission Houses Historic Site and Archives is popular for preserving the the two oldest houses in the state!

The first house was made in the US mainland, shipped here and assembled back together while the second house was built by missionaries using coral blocks.

This place is literally the birthplace of the written Hawaiian language- established for communication between the missionaries and the locals.

Don’t miss out on the replica of the first printing press brought to Hawaii.

  • We had a great tour today led by the curator. He was very knowledgeable and sincere and you felt he loves what his work and it shows in his presentation. Thanks.

  • My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the guided tour by Docent Rose Hansen through the Mission House buildings on the Kamaaina discount Sat, even though the weather was very rainy. Her attention to detail in sharing the history of the early missionaries in Hawaii, their lifestyle and challenges throughout their time here, their artifacts, and the contributions and influences the missionaries made to our Hawaiian culture and history thru the printing press, music, fashion, construction, and of course in religion, were most enlightening, and even different from our early understandings. We highly recommend this tour, or even a revisit, to visitors and kamaaina alike. Mahalo to Curator Mike and Gift Shop assistant Grace for a very memorable experience.

  • Hawaiian history is kept and preserved

  • Had a nice tour of the historic buildings. The history of of the printing press was interesting as was the translation and printing of the bible into the Hawaiian language. The gift shop was nice. Staff were very friendly.

  • Oh outstanding location for looking at the historical events of our past.. Visit and judge for yourself and share your thoughts...
