Most People In Montana Don’t Know About Our Old World War II POW Camp

Montana’s past could fill pages and pages of history books. From our legendary dinosaur trail to our perfectly preserved ghost towns, our history is both lengthy and fascinating. So it’s easy to forget the fact that the iconic Fort Missoula was once used for more than a place to hold relics from the past as a means of preservation. In fact, it’s the former location of a World War II era internment camp.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
