Wartime History
During the Japanese occupation of Guam, Adelup Point was a heavily armed site with fortifications built into the rock cliffs. A battery of large guns was also mounted at the point. After the recapture of the island by the United States, Commodore W. O. Hiltabidle, CEC USN, 5th Naval Construction Brigade, set up his command post here.
