There is quite a bit of erosion at the HDOP. There are remains of a wooden building shown in the view toward Pasagshak. In a gulley there are many wood beams, probably building remains. The ANNEX exhibits for this site do not show any support structures. However, the ranger station at Ft. Abercrombie has a map that does show more buildings.
Quoting from the Harbor Defense Annex B:
(1) HDOP No. 1 is located on Site 1A, Narrow Cape. Exhibit No. 20B. (2) This OP, a reinforced concrete, dug-in, splinter-proof structure, was completed 17 Nov 1943. (3) This station is to be equipped with an M1 DPF, class 3 and communications to act as an emergency base end station.
On top of the HDOP is a US CADASTRAL SURVEY marker EC-29 - G134 - 1971.
These are 8.5 by 11 xerox copies of the annex maps:
HDOP, Harbor Defense Observation Post No. 1.
Finger lake and the launch pad for the Kodiak Launch Complex
(The KLC has a website with a very good aerial view of Narrow Cape. The WWII facilities are on the cape to the lower left of the aerial picture at the bottom of this page.)
