Upon the opening of Hulihee Palace, 1928.

Story of Hulihee Palace Told By Mrs. Swanzy On Even of New Dedication

More on Hulihee Palace from Jared G. Smith, 1944.

Hulihee Palace
II

By JARED G. SMITH

Hulihee Palace, Kailua, North Kona, was built in 1837 as the home of Governor John Adams Kuakini, Hawaiian High Chief, wise leader and ruler of his people during the troubled decades when the conflict between Polynesian and occidental ideologies was becoming acute. He was friendly to the missionaries, Protestant and Catholic, building churches for both alike, setting the example of adopting new ideas which seemed to him  advantageous to the Hawaiian people, yet retaining and preserving the old manner of life and the historic pageantry of his court for he was of the Alii, a Kamehameha, brother of Queen Kaahumanu, prideful of place and power and lineage.

New dispensary to be built, 1889.

NEW BOARD OF HEALTH DISPENSARY.

A new location where medicines will be dispensed for the Board of Health [Papa Ola] will be built on the government land, Ewa side of Fire Station Number 1 [Hale Kaawai o ka Helu 1], on King street; it will be a more pleasant and safe place for the sick to go to, not like how it is now at Kapamoo, where the building is very small and some have to stand outside.

Henry F. Bertelmann [H. F. Bakalamana] received the contract to construct the building; he was the low bid of $1,700, better than the others.

[Bertelmann is often seen also as Bertlemann.]
