With three historic buildings and an extensive archival collection, the Hawaiian Mission Houses Historic Site and Archives (HMH) preserves and interprets the history and lives of early New England missionaries to the Hawaiian islands. For tourists and school groups on Oʻahu, the organization provides insight into a pivotal moment in Hawaiian history, while also reaching audiences on other Hawaiian islands and the continental U.S. through its theater program. NEH funding has helped Hawaiian Mission Houses interpret its historic site and preserve its archival collections. And with grants from Mass Humanities and Connecticut Humanities, the NEH’s state partners, HMH has reached audiences in New England, bringing the far-flung locales close historical relationship to the fore.
