The Hulihee Palace which can be found on Kailua Bay on Big Island has been there since the 1830s when John Adams Kuakini, who became the governor at that time also started building this place.

But tragically he died just months later and left it behind for Princess Ruth Luka Ke’elikolani who held onto her property.
