Francois Kaserne

Yorkhof and Francois Kasernes were built around the turn of the century. Francois Kaserne, located across from Yorkhof Kaserne, was built in 1894 for the 6th Thuringian Ulanen Regiment. Ulanen in military terms translates to 'cavalry.' This caserne and others making up the Lamboy area were erected on the battlefield site of Napoleon's last victory in Germany. After World War II, it was used for a time as a camp for displaced persons until the U.S. took it over for its present use.
