Jerome War Relocation Center

Location Information

Poston War Relocation Center
Poston, AZ 85371

The Jerome War Relocation Center was a Japanese American internment camp located in southeastern Arkansas near the town of Jerome. Open from October 1942 until June 1944,[1] it was the last relocation camp to open and the first to close; at one point it contained as many as 8,497 inhabitants.[1] After closing, it was converted into a holding camp for German prisoners of war.[1] Today, there are few remains of the camp still visible, the most prominent being the smokestack from the hospital incinerator.
