BAINBRIDGE ISLAND — A ribbon cutting ceremony Saturday at Bainbridge Island marked the second phase of the development of a monument that marks the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II.
It’s a 276-foot long wall — one foot for each of the islanders who were interned.
The Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce reported the first phase of the memorial included walkways and a passenger drop-off area. Future phases will include an interpretive center and a pier at the site of the former dock where soldiers loaded residents on a ferry in 1942.
The Bainbridge Island memorial is a satellite of the Minidoka National Historic Site in Idaho.
