Magnificent mansion late nineteenth, symbol of the extreme political tensions of the beginnings of the 3rd Republic. The Communards had destroyed the mansion of Thiers: it was rebuilt even more grandiose with public funds, according to a special law. Today, it is the seat of a foundation dedicated to historical research over the period 1789-1914. A place laden with history, which is visited by appointment.
