Fort Douglas, Utah

The claim: This "inactive" military reservation has a renovated WWII concentration camp.

What it really is: The base closed in 1991, although it was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1975.

Most of buildings there were turned over to, and are now being used by the University of Utah. The former base also has it's own military museum there as well, which the Utah National Guard still maintains control of.

The base was used as a interment camp, but it was in World War One, and held German Americans.
