Regarding Lyman House Memorial.
Also see . . . David Belden Lyman -- Wikipedia. David Belden Lyman (July 28, 1803 – October 4, 1884) was an early American missionary to Hawaii who opened a boarding school for Hawaiians. His wife Sarah Joiner Lyman (1805–1885) taught at the boarding school and kept an important journal...Mrs. Lyman made a note in her diary about the unusual customs of drinking hot coffee, tea, and "English dinners". (Sarah's) journal recorded earthquakes felt in Hilo and volcanic eruptions of Kilauea and Mauna Loa. It was used as an informative record on the frequency and strength of tremors and of volcanic activity for subsequent researchers.
