Bluntís Point A walk above the downtown area to see some WWII artifacts in American Samoa.
Among some of American Samoaís ďhiddenĒ treasures are the historic artifacts dating  back to the Second World War.
 In the town of Utulei, Bluntís Point is the location of two  six inch naval guns mounted in 1941, which protected the entrance to Pago Pago Harbor  during WWII.  During that time, Pago Pago was a strategic refueling and supply depot  for the US Navy.  The site also has a command bunker and offers a great lookout point. 
Along the trail are various military sites including six anti-craft batteries, ammunition  magazines, a wood fire steam generator, signal equipment and a rail tram for transporting  heavy gear from sea level.  John Enright, the leading expert from the American Samoa  Historic Preservation Office, is always happy to host tours to the many historic sites of  American Samoa.    American Samoa Historic Preservation Office
