This is a standard USC&GS bench mark that was established in Honolulu approximately two blocks northeast of Waikiki Beach at the intersection of Kalakaua Avenue & Lewers Street. It was originally set on top of a concrete retaining wall. A decorative rock face was later added to the sides and top of the wall. Someone recognized the value of the marker and cored a nice hole to facilitate access to the bench mark.
