Insane Asylum

Insane Asylum An 1863 law passed by the Hawaiian legislature states: “A building is to be erected for the reception of insane persons. This facility will furnish restraint till the person becomes of sane mind or is discharged.” Its first location was at the corner of School and Lanakila Streets; the hospital was completed in 1866, and the first six patients were transferred to the hospital from the jails at which the mentally ill had previously been kept.
