During WWII, a Japanese internment camp was opened in May 8, 1942 and its peak population was almost 18,000. The prisoners were mostly from the California and Southern Arizona area.
It was so unfair what happened to these people. Placed in camps because of their being Japanese at the time of the war.
We looked for what remained of the old camp up the road but couldn't find it. May try again on our way back through another time.
