remaining buildings at Camp Adair, the military training cantonment
formed during World War II. Obtaining funding from the City of Adair,
the organization moved the buildings to city property, placed them on
earthquake-proof foundations, and stabilized them with new siding, roofs
and windows. It is now in the process of raising funds to complete the
renovation project and create an interpretive center that will provide
access to educational materials about the area’s history.
