On May 8, 2008, the Consolidated Natural Resources Act of 2008 (Pub.

This Historical Site was established to protect, preserve, and interpret the resources associated with the former Minidoka Relocation Center where Japanese Americans were incarcerated during World War II. Section 313 of the Act makes several adjustments to the Historical Site boundary and gives the National Park Service Administrative Jurisdiction over the land that underlies the Historical Site. In addition to the boundary adjustments, the Act authorizes the Department of the Interior to issue to Jerome County, Idaho, a document of Disclaimer of Interest in land for the parcel identified as Tract No. 2 which entails an 8.67 acre portion of Hunt Road adjacent to the west end of the Minidoka National Historical Site.
