Construction began in 1935 on a former privately-held glider airfield. Units based there took part in the Rhineland-invasion, in which the Army occupied the demilitarized Rhineland. Although partially destroyed by retreating German units, it was occupied by US forces on 1 April 1945 and used by them on 20 April through the end of the war.
