The monuments at the Rohwer Relocation Center honoring the Japanese-Americans interned at the camp located on Highway 1 between Back Gate and McGehee. Visible to the left in the background are gravestones of some of the individuals who died while interned there. To the right in the background behind the monument is the top of an old outhouse that was still standing in 2003 when this picture was taken. Also still standing is a smokestack located approximately a mile away that was near the camp hospital and is now the site of the Delta Special School District.
