Breaking News

The [National Park Service] has proposed restoring a block of the barracks [used to house interned Japanese-Americans during WW II in Idaho] to recreate the living conditions that roughly 13,000 ... experienced at the camp. The initiative is part of an overall plan to preserve sections of Minidoka, which became a national historic site seven years ago and now sits mostly deserted

But most of the barracks found so far are ghosts of their former selves, long since converted into homes, farming sheds, chicken and pig pens, and in one instance, a Twin Falls apartment complex.
