Significance: This structure is significant as part of the build up of the NAvy base just before WWII. It has continuously been used for similar purposes since construction, providing a much-needed multi-function recreational outlet for Navy personnel. It is one of the least altered of the pre-1945 recreation facilities at Pearl Harbor. It is associated with the history of the military providing such facilities for morale and welfare, as well as for recreation. The building also exhibits a sensitive environmental design, incorporating natural ventilation and lighting as much as possible.
