Minidoka National Historic Site

A Pearl Harbor attack intensified hostility towards Japanese Americans. As wartime hysteria mounted, President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 making over 120,000 West Coast persons of Japanese ancestry (Nikkei) leave their homes, jobs, and lives behind and move to one of ten Relocation Centers. This single largest forced relocation in U.S. history is Minidoka’s story

Directions to Activity:

The Historic Site is located between the towns of Twin Falls and Jerome, Idaho in south central Idaho. There are no facilities or services at the site and the boundaries are not well marked. Many buildings and features that were part of the center are located on private property surrounding the Historic Site.



Please do not enter any private property. We are working to establish relationships within the community to preserve the significant remaining components of the Relocation Center and to provide visitor services.

Travel north on US 93 for 5 miles to the Eden exit/turnoff.

Travel east on Highway 25 for 9.5 miles to the Hunt Rd. exit.

Travel east on Hunt Rd. for 2.2 miles to the small parking area on your right.
