In the summer of 2010, the former USAG CDR, LTC Paul Pfahler, set the course for establishing a town partnership with Delaware, Ohio, USA. Baumholder has had friendly contacts with the Wesleyan University football team for many years.
At the meeting of 22.11.2010, the city council approved this twinning and instructed the mayor to prepare a first meeting of the representatives of both cities.
According to the mandate of the city council, a delegation with the then mayor Lang and the associates Röhrig and Flohr flew to Delaware to sign the official partnership document on May 13, 2011.
