Go-See Tours: The Judiciary History Center

A special event is planned for the January 24 noon meeting of the Planning & Zoning Committee. Arrangements have been made for a guided tour of the Judiciary History Center in the beautifully restored Ali'iolani Hale building behind the King Kamehameha statue on South King Street. The Center is of particular interest to those concerned with planning and land use because it showcases the transition from the ancient Hawaiian system centered around the ahupua'a and land use to a European system built upon land ownership. The tour includes a dynamic audio visual program prepared by Tom Coffman.

Judiciary History Center tells a story of dramatic transition through exciting multi-media presentations, exhibits, and a restored courtroom.

Center Theater presents two multi-media programs, Kanawai and Law of the Land, illustrating the unique evolution of law in Hawaii.

Monarchy Courts Gallery investigates the 19th century legal and judicial processes that shaped an island kingdom.

1913 Court Room reflects Hawaii's territorial years.

Temporary Exhibit Room currently features Hawaii Under Martial Law 1941-1944, which demonstrates how life in Hawaii drastically changed after the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

Anyone interested in discovering this unique island heritage is welcome to attend. Call the League office at 531-7448 or 537-6267 so that we can have a headcount. The guided tour begins at noon on January 24.

Parking for the Judiciary History Center can be found in front of the Downtown Post Office and in front of the Kekuanao'a Building.
