Visit of the Cité Déchelette d’Amplepuis

The Association of Parents and Friends of Joseph Déchelette organized a visit around the industrial heritage Sunday 24th June, 2012 in Amplepuis, visit to which we were invited. The Déchelette city, which for some years has belonged to the national industrial heritage, is the work of the founder Benoît Déchelette and his sons Eugène and Joseph.

Led by Mrs. Monternier, former president of the Barthélémy Thimonier museum, we were able to understand the organization of the Wooden Village and the history of the workers city: factory, school, chapel, workers houses.

Two members of our association were present at this event which brought together forty participants
