Significance: Waipio Peninsula was an active part of the Pearl Harbor Naval Base during WWII. The activities that took place here were important to the success of the war efforts in the Pacific. All the Navy functions on Waipio Peninsula contributed to victory, but the Amphibious Operating Base was the most directly involved in the Pacific island-hopping campaigns that helped win the war. Almost all of the structures built on Waipio Peninsula during the early 1940s were temporary structures, such as tents, Quonset huts, and wooden warehouses. Most were demolished long ago. The few facilities that remain are the only physical evidence of Waipio Peninsula's role during WWII.
