Summary

Significance: The buildings are located within the Pearl Harbor National Historic Landmark. Building 92 is significant for its association with the now-abandoned Marine Railway No. 1, which ran between Piers B-6 and B-7/B-8. All three facilities are significant as some of the smaller shop structures built in the shipyard during the expansion of the Pearl Harbor Naval Yard facilities in the interwar years.
The three buildings are significant for their associations with Pearl Harbor Welding School, where civilian personnel were apprenticed to become welders at Pearl Harbor, an essential skill required to fulfill Pearl Harbor's role as a repair facility for the U.S. Navy's Pacific fleet.
Survey number: HABS HI-451
