Notes
Survey number HABS HI-399
Building/structure dates: 1941 initial construction
National Register Number: 66000940
Significance: Facility No. 174 was part of the early expansion of the Army Air Field on Ford Island. It is one of the oldest hangars in Pearl Harbor and is associated with both Army and Navy aviation history on Ford Island. It was built as a hangar for the Army's Luke Field and converted to a storehouse for practice bombs when the Naval Air Station took over the Army portion of the island during WWII. Facility No. 174 is a rare extant example of the "United States All-Steel Hanger" developed in 1918 as a standard hangar design for WWI airfields and aviation training stations. Facility No. 174 is a contributing element to the Pearl Harbor National Historic Landmark.
