Florence, Arizona

The claim: WWII prison camp NOW RENOVATED, OPERATIONAL with staff & 400 prisoners, operational capacity of 3,500.

What it really is: Using Google maps I took a look at the general area where the prison camp was (which was north of the city), and there is nothing there except some farms and some houses.

Now there are in fact two prisons located in Florence (the Arizona State Prison Complex – Eyman, and the Arizona State Prison Complex – Florence) both of which are run by the Arizona Department of Corrections and not the federal government.
