the foundation and interpretive center work to preserve this site pictured here with heart mountain in the background

Formed in 1996, the Heart Mountain Wyoming Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The Foundation works to preserve what remains of the World War II Japanese American confinement site in Park County, Wyoming, and to tell the stories of the more than 14,000 people unjustly incarcerated at the site. In August of 2011, the Foundation opened the Heart Mountain Interpretive Center, a world-class museum dedicated to teaching this story to future generations.
