Description 

The original central portion, built circa 1847, was a good example of the classical revival mansion with the two-level portico and central stairhall. It is historically one of Hawaii's most significant existing building since it was the home of the Dominis family; later, Queen Liliuokalani resided here, and for the past forty-four years it has been the home of the governors of the Territory and State of Hawaii. -- Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS HI-6)
