Minidoka Internment National Monument
—National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior —
Today the foundations of two of the four entrance gate buildings remain, the Military Police Building and the Reception Building. The entrance gate was the most heavily guarded location in the camp. Military Police monitored the daily flow of traffic as people moved in and out of the camp. Camp visitors and internees had to wait in the Reception Building for clearance before entering or leaving the camp. Armed guards at the entrance station stood watch to make certain all complied.
They’ve sunk in posts deep into the ground. They’ve strung out wires all the way around with machine gun nest just over there and sentries and soldiers everywhere.
Erected by National Park Service.
