Long Description:
From website :

"During World War II, White Rock Lake was used as a training base and processing center for American GIs, and later as a camp for German prisoners of war captured from General Erwin Rommel?s Afrika Corps. Some of the prisoners worked at a United States military shop at Fair Park repairing army equipment and sewing GI uniforms. Anxious neighbors frequently reported suspicious men they feared were prisoners making a getaway, but apparently there was never an escape attempt."

Unfortunately the barracks and buildings were all destroyed.
