History

As with many towns in this part of France, World War I saw the place reduced to rubble. A Parisian architect, Jacques Debat-Ponsan was employed to design and reconstruct the town’s public buildings.

  • Reconstruction of the school and Mayor’s office – accomplished in 1927
  • Reconstruction of the church achieved in 1920
  • Other reconstructions. A certain number of homes, judging by their style, were rebuilt by the same architect.
