The year 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the formal opening of the Hawai‘i State Capitol.

Dedicated on March 15, 1969, the 10th anniversary of the passing of the Hawai‘i Statehood Bill by Congress, the building stands unique among the other 49 state capitol buildings, proclaiming Hawai‘i to be part of the United States, but not part of America.

“The Capitol – E Komo Mai” is the theme of the full-color 2019 calendar produced by the Department of Land and Natural Resources divisions of State Historic Preservation and Boating and Ocean Recreation, with the Hawai‘i Heritage Center. The calendar is designed by Viki Nasu Design Group with photography by David Franzen.

“For more than 30 years, the State Historic Preservation calendar has showcased the rich cultural and architectural history of Hawai‘i,” DLNR Chair Suzanne Case said. “DLNR and the Hawai‘i Heritage Center are deeply grateful for the continued support of the following corporate sponsors to share our outstanding treasures with the community.”
