Summary

Significance: The International Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's Union Hall is significant for its associations with the labor movement of the World War II-era and for its role in the operations of the Port Hueneme Advanced Base Supply Depot, a crucial part of the operations of the U.S. Navy's Construction Battalions during the war years. The building itself is a typical World War II temporary building, probably adapted from the B-2 Series of standardized plans developed by the Bureau of Yards and Docks. The fact that the U.S. Navy built this building for the ILWU reflects a great desire on the part of the Navy to acquire a skilled force of longshoremen to handle supplies in what was then a remote part of Southern California, located far from the port cities of the Bay Area and the Los Angles Basin, where most ILWU workers resided.
