7. THE GAZEBO
The gazebo, dedicated on 24 June 1982, is frequently a gathering place for weddings, promotions, award ceremonies and other unit functions. It marks the spot of Quarters 13, which burned on 23 January 1982. The building first served as the Post Headquarters from 1907 until the Hawaiian Department Headquarters moved to Fort Shafter from the Alexander Young Hotel in June 1921. Building 13 was host to the Roberts Commission investigating the tragic events of 7 December 1941 from 22 to 26 December 1941. In 1947, Fort Shafter converted the building into family quarters.
Next to the gazebo are plaques under some of the trees planted to commemorate special occasions.
