Hale Was First Meant to Be a Palace. 2004 article by Burl Burlingame in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin. “In the 1893 revolution, the Provisional Government read their declaration in Ali‘iolani Hale. This event signaled the end of the Hawaiian monarchy, and government services were shifted out of Ali‘iolani Hale and into Iolani Palace to underscore the point. The Judiciary branch moved in and has been there ever since. The Judiciary History Center, currently on the Diamond Head side of the first floor, provides an interesting overview of Hawaiian legal history.” (Submitted on November 14, 2008.)
