Rehoboth Nike Site Years Later

Pictures of the Rehoboth Nike Housing Area

All that remain are cracked asphalt roads, concrete slabs where the houses used to be, and overgrown vegetation.  Some of those big green things aren’t trees; they’re now wild, overgrown bushes and shrubs that used to be neatly trimmed adorning some houses!  Buildings of the Rehoboth Battery LCA once located there (not shown but south of and behind the housing area) are still being used today as Rehoboth Town Council offices.
