Notes
Survey number HAER CA-134-1
Building/structure dates: 1942 initial construction
Significance: Antiaircraft Battery No. 1 is the finest surviving example of an antiaircraft artillery emplacement of the World War II era in the system of seacoast defenses that protected the San Francisco Bay area. It is considered to be the prime potential exhibit for interpreting the subject of antiaircraft defense in the national recreation area, and is of special note due to the surviving evidence of the intensive effort to camouflage it because of its exposed location.
