Notes
Survey number HABS HI-369
Building/structure dates: 1943 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1944 subsequent work
Building/structure dates: 1967 subsequent work
National Register Number: 66000940
Significance: Facility 17 started as two Quonset huts, a common World War II building type. This, however, is a slight variation on the standard form, with 3'-0" concrete base walls. The building's significance is mostly due to its association with the history of the intelligence center that supported Admiral Charles Nimitz, the Commander in Chief, Pacific during World War II. The intelligence organizations housed in this and adjacent buildings were critical in helping the Allies win the war.
