The Story

It wasn’t a hard job but it paid the bills. Frank sat behind the desk making sure there was no trouble. He couldn’t remember the last time there was trouble though. After all, it was just a museum. Most people were friendly enough.

A few years ago, some of those hippy types wanted to come protest unfair treatment or something or other, but they didn’t stay long when they realized not many people actually visited the place.

Shortly after those planes hit the buildings over in New York, some feds came sniffing around. The gossip was that some were considering reopening the internment camps and the feds were seeing if the location was still suitable. Frank didn’t know anything about that though. And the idea seemed to pass because they never came back.

The History

This guardhouse is part of the old Gila River Arts and Crafts Center. It was built in 1970 and was designed as a way to educate the general public about local Native American tribes. The center also included areas dedicated to the Mormon Trail and a nearby Japanese Internment Camp. The building was closed in the early 2000’s.
