U.S. Naval Base, Pearl Harbor, Ferry Landing Type, Halawa Landing on Ford Island, Pearl City, Honolulu County, HI
Significance: The ferry landings at Pearl Harbor represent a unique part of the history of transportation at the base. They are closely tied to the history of Ford Island, which was the Naval Air Station between 1923 and 1962 and was also an Army air base from 1918 until 1939. Before 1999, supplies, personnel, and equipment had to reach Ford Island by water, supplemented to a slight extent by plane or helicopter transport. These ferry landings are also associated with the build-up of the base before and during WWII, when the great increase in water-borne traffic required rerouting the ferries and, thus, the building of new landings at Halawa and the reconstruction of the Ford Island landing.
