Internment House

During WWII there were scores of these houses built in the "Orchard" area of New Denver for interned Japanese and Japanese-Canadian families. Fourteen by twenty-eight feet, some housed two families. Many of these houses still exist, now upgraded with insulation, indoor plumbing and electricity, but most have had large extensions added on. This one lives on in its original diminutive dimensions.
