“Worthwhile experience”

Minidoka National Historic Site
Reviewed 14 August 2017

I'm glad we detoured a bit to find this place. It's not the most developed national monument site, but perhaps that would detract from the experience. There is a reconstruction of a guard tower. The "camp" area itself has a few of the original building and the baseball field. The interpretive center is well staffed and provides an abundance of educational material.

The Pearl Harbor attack intensified existing hostility towards Japanese Americans. As wartime hysteria mounted, President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 forcing over 120,000 West Coast persons of Japanese ancestry (Nikkei) to leave their homes, jobs, and lives behind and move to one of ten Relocation Centers. This single largest forced relocation in U.S. history is Minidoka's story. Self- or guided-tour of this sacred ground including original structures, rebuilt replicas and interpretation are available.
