Significance: The Hale Alii neighborhood was built during the initial development of the Pearl Harbor Naval Base to house the officers of the Navy Yard. Quarters A is notable as the residence of the Commandant (Commanding Officer) of the 14th Naval District and the Navy Yard. This position was the highest-ranking naval officer in Hawaii until 1939, when the headquarters of the Pacific Fleet moved from California to Hawaii. At the time of the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, Rear Admiral C.C. Bloch, Commandant, 14th Naval District, was in residence.The Hale Alii officers' quarters are excellent examples of early twentieth-century Craftsman-style architecture. The structures are among the largest and most architecturally elaborate of the residences at the Pearl Harbor installation. The structures are distinctive for their use of materials such as local lava rock (basalt), rustic wood shingle siding and roofing, and ohia (a local hardwood) flooring, as well as for their design. Significant design features include balustraded balconies, decorative wood brackets at the roofs and porticos, jigsawn rafters, multi-light wood doors and windows; as well as ornamental interior moldings, such as pedimented head casings at doors and windows, and free-standing and engaged columns/pilasters at the entry vestibule.
