National Park Service Demolishes Pearl Harbor Historic Building

CPO Bungalow on Ford Island was listed as a “Most Endangered” Historic Site in 2005

8/23/16: In July, the National Park Service (NPS) released its report examining the facts and circumstances surrounding the demolition of a historic bungalow at World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument that was present during the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. The original intent of the National Park Service was to rehabilitate the aging bungalow and preserve its historic setting. However, the park failed to complete required consultation with proper authorities and the bungalow was leveled to its foundation in late 2015 and replaced with a similar building earlier this year.

Historic Property Pages Share Significance and Characteristics

Properties that are listed on the Hawai‘i or National Registers of Historic Places are shared through individual pages at the “Historic Places” tab on the website. The online listing of historic properties includes individual information pages for each designated historic property. The summary page includes the history, location and significance of each property, and a link to a digital copy of the original nomination form. The designated properties are organized by County and further sorted by type of property (residential building, non-residential building, sites/objects/structures, and other). Most of the locations include a map and photograph, as well as cross-reference numbers by address, SHPD site number and tax map key number.

The program is part of Historic Hawai‘i Foundation’s Preservation Resource Center and is supported by the Historic Preserves of Hawai‘i grant from the Hawai‘i Community Foundation. The list is provided as a public service, but is not the official register of historic places. For official designations and determinations of eligibility, contact the State Historic Preservation Division of the Department of Land and Natural Resources at 808-692-8015.

“Hawai‘i Modern” Booklet Available for Purchase

“Hawaii Modern” showcases a small but significant portion of the built environment from mid-20th century in Hawaii. This 24-page, soft-cover booklet highlights homes, commercial buildings, resorts, public facilities, sacred sites, landscapes and other properties from this dynamic period. Historic Hawaii Foundation gratefully acknowledges the support of those who contributed to Hawai‘i Modern, especially Don Hibbard, author & photographer, and Viki Nasu, graphic designer. Funding was provided by the Hawaii Council for the Humanities to promote the richness and value of the humanities—including an understanding of the architectural history and preservation of Hawaii’s past—for the Hawaiian Islands.
