Founded in 1844, Oʻahu Cemetery is Hawaii’s oldest public graveyard and the permanent residence of hundreds of prominent history makers including noted Bishop Museum anthropologist, Kenneth Emory; railroad pioneer, Benjamin F. Dillingham; and beloved Hawaiian musical star Bina Mossman, to name a few.
Located on 18 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds in lower Nuuanu Valley, near downtown Honolulu, Oʻahu Cemetery is a classic example of an early American “rural” cemetery, distinguished by a park-like setting, and an eye-catching array of ornately carved upright tombstones.
