Kamp van Beverloo - Cavalerie (Barracks of Beverloo - Cavalry)
The very last remains of the original Cavalry lodging buildings in the socalled “Kamp van Beverloo” (‘Camp de Beverloo’ / ‘Barracks of Beverloo’). The Cavalry units had their own barracks to the South of the actual village LEOPOLDSBURG (Bourg Léopold). In the haydays of the camp, there were 38 blocks of the same type built for lodging troups. The 38 blocks were built in two parallel rows with two parallel rows of 36 stables between them. All blocks in the Cavalry Barracks bear the letter ‘K’ followed by their number. Recently the army started to tear down all blocks and left the two very last original ones at the West side of the camp. The blocks are: K130 and K131. They are now in use as a local museum, staffed by volunteers. The museum is called: ‘MKOK’ - Museum K-blokken en Oscar-kapel (the Museum of the K-blocks and the Oscar-chapel).
To the south of K130 and K131 are : a large building (K150) (weapons store); and a wooden chapel (Oscar).
