Heart Mountain, Wyoming

The claim: Park County N. of Cody - WWII Japanese interment camp ready for renovation.

What it really is: The Heart Mountain Relocation Center (that is it's actually name) was named as a National Historical Landmark in 2007.

The Federal Bureau of Reclamation currently owns 74 acres of the land there, while the Heart Mountain Wyoming Foundation, a non-profit organization established in 1996 to memorialize the center's internees and to interpret the site's historical significance, owns the remaining 50 acres.

Currently a museum called the Heart Mountain Wyoming Interpretive Learning Center is also located there as well.

The site is open to the public.
