Notes
Survey number HABS HI-319
National Register Number: 66000940
Significance: The Naval Base at Pearl Harbor including Ford Island was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1964, due to the crucial role it played in the Nation's defense during the twentieth century and the calamitous events which occurred on December 7, 1941. As a Category 3 facility, Building Q13 is determined to be of minor importance to the historic character of the National Historic Landmark. Hundreds of thousands of quonset huts were erected as temporary buildings all over the glove during World War II and became "the archetypal military building type of the way." These buildings embody the distinctive characteristics of a type, period, and method of construction. It is a simple and utilitarian design, that meets stringent engineering and client requirements. The quonset hut is one of the forerunners of the trend to mass-produced building products and standardized erection techniques that has had a significant effect on the broad patterns of our history.
