The founding of Honolulu is a bit of a mystery. Based on the oral histories of Hawaiians and archaeological finds, Honolulu could have been settled by the first Polynesians nearly 2,000 years ago.

In the early 1800s, Honolulu was occupied by a monarch and his court. The city's name means “sheltered harbor,” but the origin of its naming is uncertain.

The first foreigner to enter the harbor of Honolulu was a captain from an English ship at the turn of the 18th century. Since then, the city’s port has become an epicenter of shipping to and from Hawaii. The city's many exports included sandalwood, sugar, and pineapples.
