National Register Number: 66000940
Significance: In 1964, the U.S. Naval Base, Pearl Harbor was designated a National Historic Landmark (NHL). The 1962 study of potential NHLs noted that the U.S. possession of Pearl Harbor and "the development of a naval base and headquarters there after 1898 were important factors in the rise of United States naval power in the Pacific. The dispute of this power by Japan, in turn, eventually contributed to the precipitation of war between the United States and Japan, the significant opening shots of which occurred at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. The site, then, appears intimately associated with the rise of the United States as a world power." The Pearl Harbor area has also been recognized for its archeological significance, as well as for its military history. Okiokiolepe fishpond, built in the pre-contact period, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, but a few others are also extant and as many as 25 fishponds,fish traps, and other aquacultural features previously existed within the Pearl Harbor basin. There are also archeological sites related to agricultural and residential activities in the pre-contact and early historic periods.
