Friday, May 06, 1887

Queen Liliuokalani seems to have made two visits to Mount Vernon. She described the first, in 1887, when she accompanied Queen Kapiolani, in her book, Hawaii's Story by Hawaii's Queen, which was published in 1898.

Her second visit was in 1893. Many years later, Mount Vernon Superintendent Harrison Howell Dodge recalled the second visit:

“In the same year [1893] Queen Liliuokalani of Hawaii came, escorted by Mr. Carter, American Minister to Hawaii. When one of my little girls was presented and courtesied [sic] prettily, the Queen said to Mr. Carter, “That child should be called the Queen of Mount Vernon."
