Bainbridge Island | Japanese American Exclusion Memorial
An important monument , 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. Located at Pritchard Park, 4192 Eagle Harbor Drive a short drive from Winslow.
A unique National Historic Site inspired to represent the waves of time passing, the sinuous, curving Memorial Wall is built on the historic Eagledale Ferry dock landing site where the first of more than 120,000 Japanese Americans - two/thirds of them U.S. citizens - were banished from their West…
An important and ugly piece of our nation's history, the memorial remembers those who were the first Japanese-Americans to be forcibly removed from their homes and sent to interment camps.
