Notes
Survey number HABS HI-400
Building/structure dates: 1941 initial construction
National Register Number: 66000940
Significance: Facility Nos. 175 and 176 are associated with the history of the Navy's transition from seaplanes to landplanes. The hangars were critical components of the aircraft carrier support facilities on the northwest side of Ford Island, and contributed to the U.S. victory in WWII. These two are the only known WWII hangars of this type in Hawaii. Facility Nos. 175 and 176 were designed by the office of Albert Kahn, a prominent architectural firm noted for their industrial buildings. They are contributing elements to the Pearl Harbor National Historic Landmark.
