DougGroenhoff's conversations

Hello Doug,

my name is Andreas. 1969 I was 10 years old. I lived across the Spinelli Barracks. (the house on the left next to the red) I have very good and beautiful memories of the US soldiers in the Spinelli Baracks. Now the barracks is empty. It will be a great park for Mannheim. I have a few photos from there. I can send it! Do you have memories of Mannheim (Feudenheim)?

many greetings Andreas

This is across the street from the now closed U.S. Spilelli Barracks. This may be the place we used to go to have beer and food. 1968-69 We called this are "The Gardens"

Thanks for the photo and memory. I worked here in 1968-1969. We have our own Spinelli Barracks Facebook page for this time period.

Glad you enjoyed the photo. It's not usually this green nowadays either. More rain than usual this last spring.

Wow. It's still there.

I last had the opportunity to be in Duran at Christmas 1980 with much of the Hindi family. That was unforgettable, as was touring a part of what was the original Ranch. I believe it was twice the area of, say, San Francisco. If I have surviving photos I will post them.

The building was a general store on the bottom and a hotel on top. There are 14 rooms upstairs. There is a great story about the history of this place and the last hanging in NM. You can read about it by searching for the geocaches in thus little town. (Go to, sign in and search for Duran, NM. There are 5 caches in thus town!.)

Great Picture!!!

  Hello.    Doug!  Your pictures have profound artistic value. I am impressed in your gallery. LIKE. 相親相近 成球平和 = Our close relationship will breed global peace.... ((^_^))

I stayed there in 1968. It was my barracks, Mostly empty space but some of it was still in use. May have been an old German hospital originally, not sure.
