Beverlo Camp will forever be tied to Leopoldsburg. The village was created by the expansion of this camp. To this day, Leopoldsburg (or ‘t Kamp in popular speech) is known for its military camp. No soldier doesn’t know where it is located!
But the military camps are also experiencing the test of time. Buildings are decaying, demolished or replaced by newer ones. Part of the old buildings were already disposed of by Belgian Defence. Some have been given a new position, but others have unfortunately been completely aborted. The new retirement home, for example, stands on the site where the coal warehouse used to be and a very large part of the old cavalry camp (quarter Reigersvliet) was demolished to make way for the new prison. However unfortunate it is, it remains of the utmost importance that we properly document these and give them a place that they will never be forgotten! These can also be found below. This list is certainly not exhaustive and more will disappear in the future…
