England Air Force Base was closed in 1992. Since then the base has been turned into
an Airpark with various businesses occupying the vacated buildings. The golf course has
undergone a major overhaul, changing it from a nine hole course to eighteen. Part of the
base housing was turned into a very nice community for senior living. The local airport
was changed from the old Esler Field in Pineville to the Airpark and renamed Alexandria
Update (24 December 2007): Two new fire stations have been constructed. A multi
million dollar air terminal and new control tower are now in use. A new hotel has been
opened, along with other new constructions, and modifications to the existing buildings.
A number of the old buildings have either been replaced or just torn down which better
beautifies the grounds.
The golf course has been renovated and is now a new 18
hole facility with a new clubhouse.
We are still looking for photos and other
