Notes
Survey number HAER HI-14
Building/structure dates: 1943 initial construction
National Register Number: 66000940
Significance: On the morning of December 7, 1941, the USS CALIFORNIA was berthed at Wharf F-3, which is located near Wharf F-3-1/2. The USS CALIFORNIA was truck by two torpedoes and a 250-kg bomb. It also sustained serious damage from a near-miss from another bomb. It sank over a period of three days. The arduous righting operations (lifting and floating of ship from submerged position) of the USS CALIFORNIA were completed on March 24, 1942. The ship was then placed in drydock on April 9, 1942. Wharf F-3-1/2 was installed in 1943 to provide berthing for small craft and consists of approximately 840 linear feet (LF) of concrete wharf starting at Ferry Slip "A" and approximately 160 LF of steel sheetpile bulkhead wharf to the side of Small Boat Landing S375. The U.S. Naval Base at Pearl Harbor was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964. As a Category 3 structure, it has been determined that Wharf F-3-1/2 functioned as part of the Pearl Harbor Naval Base, but is only of minor importance to the historic character of the National Historic Landmark.
