Only one latte stone sits erected since the time of the ancient Chamorros who occupied the Mariana Islands. Prior to the war ( WWII), there were several sets of latte sites that could be found on this part of the island of Tinian. Either during or after the war, the other tasa and haligi that surrounded this particular site were removed. In my opinion, I think it was to reconstruct the area to be commercial friendly in regards to infrastructure of the island. Once the United States of America established control over the Northern Mariana Islands, they quickly utilized the islands to become one of the most significant air bases during the war.
