Bluntâ€™s Point A walk above the downtown area to see some WWII artifacts in American Samoa.
Among some of American Samoaâ€™s â€œhiddenâ€ treasures are the historic artifacts dating back to the Second World War.
In the town of Utulei, Bluntâ€™s 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.
