Patrick Henry Village
Patrick Henry Village, also called PHV, is a United States Army installation at Heidelberg, Germany. It opened in 1947 after World War II and was named after Patrick Henry, first and sixth Governor of Virginia.
PHV was at its height populated with up to 16000 Americans, and is now (2012) mostly unoccupied.
After the attacks on the twin towers in 2001 in New York PHV was fenced in and an access is only possible through guarded check points with an installation pass. The yearly American 'volksfest' was also cancelled.
The PHV became extended in the south just recently with a new commissary and parking lot, as well a new entrance, due to the new road from Heidelberg to Schwetzingen. In 2002 the US Army planned a large extension of the housing area, but soon after announced the closure of the Heidelberg and Mannheim facilities. This is planned for 2014.
