If you're ever passing through the Kahului Airport in Maui, there is a wonderful Road to Statehood display that went up in 2009 in celebration of Hawaii's 50th anniversary. It is located near gate 17 and is in a part of the airport you should pass right by while catching most flights to the mainland.

If you are interested in learning more and aren't passing through the islands any time soon, there is a timeline very similar to the one in the airport online at http://statehoodhawaii.org/hist/sctl.html.
On a more personal note, my family has been in the islands for almost as long. My grandma first visited in 1958 and moved there shortly thereafter to start a new life and the family-owned business we operate today. She is 98 and still lives on Maui.
