  4. Naval air station. In 1940 the U.S. Navy purchased the site of the naval air station from the Campbell Estate and established the ʻEwa Marine Corps Air Station. On April 15, 1942, the station was commissioned as Barbers Point Naval Air Station. On July 1, 1999, the 3,700-acre station was closed in a series of nationwide base closings. The navy retained 1,173 acres for a housing complex, a medical center, and a golf course. The remaining acreage was dispersed among other federal, state, and county agencies. White Plains and Nimitz Beaches were opened to the public and became part of a 333-acre regional park that is managed by the county. The station was renamed the Kalaeloa Community Development District.
