Livingston, Louisiana

The claim: WWII German/Italian internment camp being renovated?; halfway between Baton Rouge and Hammond, several miles north of Interstate 12.

What it really is: The World War Two interment camp (known as Camp Livingston) was shut down in 1945. The site of the camp is now run by the U.S. Forest Service, and is open to the public for any one who wishes to explore the site and see what remains.

  1. Actually Camp Livingston is in Pineville, LA, which is North Louisiana. Livingston, LA is in Southeastern Louisiana. They are about 170 miles away from each other.
