On a rainy April Sunday Josh, Jacob, and I paid a visit to the Minidoka Relocation Center. Minidoka was a Japanese-American internment camp in Idaho during World War II.
The Minidoka Relocation Center opened August 10, 1942. At it's peak the population reached 9,397 in 1943 making Minidoka one of the largest cities in Idaho at the time.
Today about the only thing remaining of the camp are these rock foundations of the Visitor waiting room and the guard station.
