In the early days of World War II, Camp Richie, then a National Guard training camp, was taken over by the federal government. A Military Intelligence Training Center was established to train intelligence units.

A tight wall of security was drawn around the post and little was known of these intelligence activities until the war ended.

German and Japanese uniforms, weapons and equipment were common sights on the post. The center was closed in 1945 and Camp Richie was returned to the Maryland National Guard.

The Marker Is Missing

When the Pen Mar Development Assoc. purchased Ft. Richie from the government. They removed some of the historical markers. This marker was definitely removed since the mounting platform is still there, but no sign.
