Poston, AZ Japanese Internment Camp barrack (0717)

Poston, AZ Japanese Internment Camp barrack (0717)
Not far from the memorial to the internment camp, a building that almost certainly was part of the original internee quarters on the camp. After the internment camps were closed, the buildings were turned over to the local communities and many were converted to other uses. This building is of the same shape and construction of internment camp buildings, including having a very large open interior and the foundation of vertical beams resting on concrete pads. One difference from other internment camp buildings in other areas is that the original buildings usually had exteriors of simple tar paper; it looks like this one may have had wood siding added at some later date.
