US Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District History (1992)
On 10 April 1942, the United States Army leased 11.99 acres from Kern Food Products Incorporated, in South Gate, California. The 11.99 acre site was developed and named the Salvage
Segregation Center - South Gate. It was a storage facility to be used in connection with the War Department establishment known as the Ninth Service Command Salvage Segregation Center. A
deteriorated warehouse currently exists onsite which may have been constructed by the Army.

The site was declared excess on 15 July 1946 and accountability given to the Corps of Engineers (USACE). The lease, containing 11.99 acres, was terminated by the USACE on 21 December 1946. A portion of the site is an abandoned chemical plant currently used by the City of South Gate as a vehicle storage yard. The remainder of the site is undeveloped.
Location : 4244 Santa Ana Street, South Gate, California
