Granada, Co. sits about 19 miles east of Lamar, just across the line separating Kansas and Colorado. Irrigated farming dominates the scene, but this town is most remembered as a Japanese relocation camp during World War II. Shortly after Japan bombed Pearl Harbor, the U.S. government ordered all West-Coast Japanese-Americans to be relocated to inland camps. Known then as Amache, the camp here served as a holding center for 7,600 Japanese-Americans from 1942 until 1945.

These days Granada is home to about 600 residents. Local farms yield succulent melons as well as onions and peppers. A gas station and restaurant are open in town and additional travel amenities including a visitors' center are located in neighboring Lamar.
