In the early 1800’s a group of New England missionaries found their way to the Hawaiian Islands.

The Lyman family build themselves a home on the island that was reminiscent of the New England they had recently left.

The house has since been saved from demolition and turned into a museum which holds the title of the oldest extant frame structure on the island of Hawaii and is on the State and National Registers of Historic Places.

The Lyman Mission House Preservation and Interpretation Project successfully undertook the preservation, restoration and interpretation of the house.

Today, the curator of the house continually checks and researches the house and its contents in order to ensure authenticity and excellence.
