Butzbach: Kirch-Gons: Ayers Today


 

Ayers Kaserne – How it looks today (1998-1999)…

Ayers Kaserne officially closed its gates sometime in 1997 or 1998.  As of May 1999, Ayers stood locked and deserted.  A Butzbach official told a member of the 3ad.org web team that fate of the property had not been decided, and that discussions were ongoing between the City of Butzbach and Landkreis Wetterau (county in U.S. terms).  

Below are thumbnail images of the area over the past few years.  Click on an image to see an enlarged version of the photo.
