History of Richmond Heights - Naval Air Station Richmond, a blimp base hastily constructed in the early months of World War II was home to 25 K-series blimps, three hangars, and 3,000 men. The hangars were 16 stories tall, built of Douglas fir brought in by train. The blimps protected ship convoys in the Florida Straits, and Richmond Naval Station was the headquarters for the fight against Nazi U-boats operating in the Caribbean. The homes at Richmond Heights were built on part of the original parcel of land where the base was situated.
