WWII and Cold War Era History Tour

Bellows Air Force Station

Hawai`i Archaeology Week

13 October 2023 (Fri)

 1:00 pm – 4 pm

Come on a Tour of the WWII and Cold War History of Bellows!

Bellows Air Force Station began as the Waimanalo Military
Reservation in 1917. It was primarily used as a training camp, a bivouac area
for infantry and for strafing, bombing, and Coastal Artillery target practice.
In 1933, the reservation was renamed Bellows Field. Bellows Field expanded
during WWII and functioned as a training camp and host to other military
detachments. Following WWII, the installation was redesignated Bellows AFS and
has hosted an array of operations including Department of Defense rest and
recreation.  From 1961 to 1970 personnel from the 298th Air
Defense Group of the Hawaii Army National Guard (HIARNG) staffed the historic
Nike Hercules Surface to Air Missile (SAM) battery.


Please bring your photo ID, hat, sun block, closed-toe
shoes, refillable water bottle.

Directions:  Take Kalanianaole Hwy (72) to Bellows
AFS entrance in Waimānalo. Turn makai (towards ocean) onto Tinker Rd and drive
through the first vacant security gate. Follow Tinker Road around 1 mile to
gravel parking area before/on left side of the beach/ campground.
