About Honouliuli National Historic Site
On February 24, 2015, Honouliuli National Monument was established to preserve and protect 123 acres of the original 160-acre Honouliuli Internment Camp where civilian internees and prisoners of war (POWs) were incarcerated during World War II. Constructed on the ‘Ewa Plain, Honouliuli is located within the deep gulch of the Honouliuli Stream, three miles northwest of Pearl Harbor. The unit was redesignated as Honouliuli National Historic Site (HONO) in 2019. The purpose of Honouliuli National Historic Site is to conserve and interpret the largest and longest used World War II incarceration site in the Hawaiian Islands. The national historic site provides opportunities for public education about the World War II internment story in Hawai’i, invites reflection on wartime experiences, and recommits us to the pursuit of freedom and justice.
Currently, HONO is closed to the public but is actively working on preservation projects, recording archeological resources, building the cultural resources database, managing invasive species, and preparing to undertake a General Management Plan that will guide the long-term operations and management of the park. The park has ongoing research projects and agreements with the University of Hawaii-West O’ahu and University of Hawaii-Manoa to conduct ethnographic, historic, and archeological research at the park.
