Uluhaimalama is now set in an urban neighborhood composed of medium to high density single family and multi-unit housing. The cemetery is located on the lots that once served as the Royal Flower Garden of Queen Liliuokalani. The lots have remarkably remained intact more than 100 years after the function of the garden was changed to a cemetery. Uluhaimalama is significant in Hawaiian and United States history as a garden-cemetery for its associations relating to the overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom in 1893 and for its association with, its former owner, Queen Liliuokalani. Uluhaimalama was one source of flowers delivered to the Queen during her imprisonment at Iolani Palace and her confinement at her home Washington Place after the government of the Hawaiian Kingdom was seized.
