Notes
Survey number HABS HI-431
Building/structure dates: 1941 initial construction
National Register Number: 66000940
Significance: Facility No. 408 was built in the spring of 1941, part of the build-up of the base that occurred before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. During WWII it served various purposes, including use as an accounting building, postal center, and mess hall. Thus, the building is a representative example of rapidly changing uses during WWII. Its architecture is an unusual combination of wood-frame and masonry construction, plus an addition consisting of Quonset hut and wood-frame portions. Thus, it embodies the distinctive characteristics of WWII period construction, when the need to build quickly and efficiently was paramount. The structure is a contributing element to the Pearl Harbor National Historic Landmark.
