Notes
Survey number HABS HI-401

Building/structure dates: 1942 subsequent work
Building/structure dates: 1943 subsequent work
Building/structure dates: 1950 subsequent work
Building/structure dates: 1952 subsequent work
National Register Number: 66000940
Significance: The building is significant because there is not other building with its form and function on the base, and because of its relationship to the history of the Naval Oil Reserve scandal in the 1920s. Its history is also tied to the other early fuel facilities at Pearl Harbor. Since its erection in 1924, it has housed the various types of lubricating oil needed for the maintenance of machinery on ships and in buildings throughout the Pearl Harbor Naval Base.
