Notes
Survey number HABS HI-429
Building/structure dates: 1945 initial construction
National Register Number: 66000940
Significance: Facility Nos. 393 and 394 were built, respectively, as an ordnance storehouse and a pipe and hardware storehouse in the last year of WWII. These two structures are significant for their unique design and association with WWII supply history. The buildings have high integrity, with most elements of their original design intact. They are the only storehouse built at Pearl Harbor with ramps leading to their second floors and a composite concrete- and wood-framed structure. This unusual architecture is a response to the rapidly expanding wartime need for storage space in close proximity to the shops and wharfs at the base. These storehouses are contributing elements to the Pearl Harbor National Historic Landmark.
