"Go-See" The Judiciary History Center

League members and guests will be treated to a guided tour of the Judiciary History Center, at noon on January 24, courtesy of the Planning and Zoning committee. Located in Ali'iolani Hale, behind the Kamehameha statue on South King Street, the beautifully restored building will be of particular interest to those members who are 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.

The Judiciary History Center tells a story of dramatic transition through exciting multimedia presentations, exhibits, and a restored courtroom.

Center Theatre 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.

The 1913 Court Room reflects Hawaii's territorial years.

The 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.

Members and guests interested in discovering this unique island heritage are welcome to attend. Call the League office at 531-7448 or 537-6267 so that we can have a head count. We will meet behind Kamehameha statue promptly at noon.

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