SIGHTSEEING

  • The City Hall:
  • The town hall occupies the site of an important stronghold of Combs-la-Ville: the lordship of Menchy. The first act found on this manor is? Admission count? Record September 20, 1508 to the Bishop of Paris, lord of Combs-la-Ville by Charles Le Cocq. Le Cocq family has occupied an important place in local history. Indeed, its members, lords of Egrenay since the mid 14th century, bought the manors of Menchy, part of Combs-la-Ville, Vaux-la-Reine and Paloisel, becoming large landowners of the parish. After passing into the hands of several owners, the manor became the property of Menchy in 1775 of Monsieur, brother of King Louis XVI, Count of Provence and future Louis XVIII.
  • Many years later, after numerous ownership changes, the property is purchased by Philippine Savoet Cecilia, wife of Alexander Ceas October 12, 1804. Immediately, she began the demolition of the mansion, then build the city we know today. The work will last five years and be completed in 1809. The facade is decorated with two busts in which it is recognized Racine and Molière. Madame Ceas subsequently bought small houses and land near the field, so that in 1810, much of the current property in its possession. But the cases of Ms. Ceas are not brilliant. It is pressed by the need for money and mortgages are a burden Menchy. Also September 27, 1817, Baron Pappenheim, Minister Plenipotentiary of the Grand Duke of Hesse to King Louis XVIII, buys Madame CEAS Menchy the field.
  • Baron has commissioned many plantations in the park, according to the review, is:? Well designed, planted in the English and the most beautiful state. The latter, whose range is twenty-three acres, is renowned for the beauty of trees it contains.? Some of them still exist, especially the beautiful row of bald cypress, from Mexico, we can see the edge of the Yerres which, unfortunately, some have been killed by the wind. In addition, he dug near the house, a pond stocked with fish fed by numerous springs flowing in the park. This is the pool that we can still admire today.

Republican convinced his advocacy has been particularly estimate of his contemporaries. Upon his death, December 5, 1903, the council decided unanimously to give its name to the street that links the streets and Sommeville Sermonoise. The domain name then? Villa Chardin?. His widow lived until his death Menchy to Combs-la-Ville, November 11, 1919.
  • After several write-inheritance, property is given by Miss Marquis Society Mutualiste? Lutece? dependent on the bishopric of Paris. The donor precluded the donee corporation to sell, alienate and mortgage for thirty years after the extinction of the usufruct it had reserved until his death, the whole subject the donation. This prohibition does not apply to garden located across the street Sommeville which are now built buildings? Villa Chardin?. Miss Marquis died February 5, 1928. So until 1982 the diocese of Paris Menchy used as a retirement home for priests? Elderly, sick or tired?. The property takes the name? Villa Notre Dame?. Today, bought by the town, the whole area has been transformed into a city hotel worthy of a town of 22 000 inhabitants.

He then sold his castle. The land is divided in the late 1920s to allow construction of villas.
  • Considering the interest of the castle because of its location in the heart of the city and across schools, the town acquired the property in 1946 to 700 000 francs. A commission to study the use of the castle then made the following proposals: entrance pavilion, housing authority employees, rented garages, public showers, technical courses and village hall.
