The two story building and its third story lookout bay is the air traffic control tower that existed on December 7, 1941 during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. The taller, red and white striped tower is actually a submarine lookout tower that was built about a year after the attack.

The towers are located on the Luke Field, an airstrip built on Ford Island in 1919. Ford Island was bought by the United States Army during World War I and it was transferred to the Navy in 1923. The naval station was decommissioned in 1962 and today Ford Island is primarily used for military housing. Ford Island was declared a United States National Historic Landmark in 1964 and it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. The island was accessed by ferry until 1998 when the Admiralty Clarey Bridge was built. The first phase of the Pacific Aviation Museum opened in Ford Island's Hanger 37 and other phases will expand the museum to Hangers 54 and 79.
