The Bainbridge Island Japanese American Exclusion Memorial is an outdoor exhibit commemorating the internment of Japanese Americans from Bainbridge Island in the state of Washington. It is a unit of the Minidoka National Historic Site in Idaho.
On March 30th 1942, the Japanese American citizens residing on Bainbridge Island were gathered at the Eagledale Ferry Dock and sent to an incarceration camp in Manzanar California, then transferred to Minidoka. This was the first action on an executive order that allowed the War Department to create zones to exclude Japanese American citizens, in response to the attack on Pearl Harbor.
The trail here follows the path the residents took to board the ferry.
