This is a view of Fort Cronkhite from a ridge to the south of it. Fort Cronkhite was completed just before the attack on Pearl Harbor. The wood-framed buildings were considered “temporary” and housed barracks, mess halls, kitchens etc. They’re still very serviceable. The western portion of Fort Cronkhite has been preserved as an historic landmark. A portion of Rodeo Lagoon is visible between the beach and the buildings.
