The New Face of the Mountain Lodge at Camp King Oberursel in June 2016

I took another walk towards Camp King around noon today. A few Mountain Lodge construction workers had not started their lunch break yet, and I heard them at work. There has been much progress on this somewhat futuristic architectural design, of which I’m not sure yet whether I like it.

So you can compare – the photo below shows the Mountain Lodge in December 2013.

Most of the old trees are still there.

For some of you, the Mountain Lodge Chapel might hold a special memory. While passing, I also heard someone working out back. The last I’d heard, the nearby Montessori school was renting the chapel for its drama department lessons and performances.

  1. Mark Schneider says

    My dad was stationed at Camp King in the early 60’s, I think the mountain lodge was the officer’s club at the time, they had a table shuffleboard there and I would go there in the morning before it was officially open for the day to play, they let me do it even though dad was the first sergeant of the post, I would have been doing push-ups for a month if he would have known. Brings back many memories.

  2. That’s funny, Mark! At least, it is now when looking back. Glad you did not get caught.
    During your time there, and until 1992, it was always called the Officers’ Club while under U.S. military.
    Did you also sneak smokes in the basement of the housing complex…? 🙂 I know somebody who did.
