Pinal County, Arizona

The claim: on the Gila River - WWII Japanese detention camp. May be renovated.

What it really is: The Gila River War Relocation Center, located in the Gila River Indian Reservation was shut down in 1945. Most of the structures that were there are long since gone. Public access to the site is restricted because the land is own by the Gila River Indian Tribe, and the land is consider sacred to them.
