Poston Relocation Center Barracks?

Poston Relocation Center Barracks?
Looking very much like the type of construction used at War Relocation Centers a possible concentration camp building sits behind a Poston church 5 miles (8 km) south of the monument on Mojave Rd. A number of buildings built for the concentration camps are still in use. Others, while still existing, are seriously deteriorated and in desperate need of maintenance. The majority were removed after the camp closed, and many are still in use as utility buildings in surrounding areas. This one looks as though it may be one of those. However it should also be noted that a shortage of available lumber led the Wartime Civilian Control Administration to build many using adobe.
