Notes
Survey number HABS HI-392
Building/structure dates: 1941 initial construction
National Register Number: 66000940
Significance: The Makalapa Administrative area facilities are significant for their support during WWII of the headquarters of Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, the Commander in Chief, Pacific Fleet. Facility 250 is the main building in the Makalapa Administration area. The building, which lies outside the Pearl Harbor National Historic Landmark (NHL) boundary, was designated an individual NHL in 1987. The NHL nomination form tied this building's significance to Admiral Nimitz and his leadership of the war effort from this headquarters. Nimitz had his headquarters at Pearl Harbor from late December 1941 until January 1945. He and his staff occupied Facility 250 from August 1842, when the building was substantially completed, to January 1945, when Nimitz moved closer to the front and established his advanced headquarters on Guam. Facility 250 and nearby buildings remained as the rear echelon headquarters
