Notes
Survey number HABS HI-414
Building/structure dates: 1940 initial construction
National Register Number: 66000940
Significance: Facility Nos. 146, 147, and 148 are associated with the history of base development at Merry Point, and the expansion of storage facilities during the build-up of WWII. Merry Point, a triangular peninsula created in 1924, had been mostly open space until four storehouses were constructed there in 1940. These three remaining wood-framed warehouses are a distinctive type, with roof monitors that are more commonly seen in steel-framed shop buildings at this naval base. This grouping constitutes a distinguishable type of storehouse that differs from other WWII storage facilities at Pearl Harbor. All three buildings are contributing elements to the Pearl Harbor National Historic Landmark.
