Camp Crossville was a prisoner of war camp during World War II. It housed German and Italian officers beginning in November, 1942 until the close of the war. It is frequently called the "Jap Camp" by local residents. However, no Japanese prisoners were ever housed there. It is located on property which currently houses the Clyde M. York 4-H Training Center near Pomona. Take the Sparta highway from Crossville to Pomona and turn left at the crossroads. A museum is located there which houses artifacts from the POW camp and is open Monday-Friday. Telephone: 931-788-2288.
