Camp Hearne, a prisoner of war camp for captured German military men from 1942 to 1946, lived again in a Saturday open house which showcases restoration activities. A special guest was author Heino Erichsen (R), a former prisoner. Camp Hearne, which was the first, and largest, of American World War II POW camps, now includes a 1942 U. S. Army barracks.
