Summary

Significance: The Hale Moku neighborhood is significant as an example of military housing built just before the United States' entry into World War II, reflecting the build-up of defenses and the related need for housing in the early 1940s. This housing also reflects the trends toward prefabrication and assembly-line techniques in building during this period when the need for rapid construction was so urgent. The neighborhood is also significant because it embodies the distinctive characteristics of the period of military construction just before and during World War II. Also, the buildings were designed by C. W. Dickey, one of Hawaii's master architects, and are further significant as one of his last works, since he died in April 1942. The Hale Moku neighborhood is also a significant and distinguishable entity that related to the context of pre-World War II military community planning in Hawaii. Also, Unite 318 at Facility 219 was occupied by Mrs. and LTJG Jimmy Carter (later President Carter) while he was assigned to submarine duty at Pearl Harbor from 1949 to 1950.
