Evecquemont

- Remains of the Castle of Roussay






Mr Paul Roux, Antique, President of Galeries Georges Petit, acquired in 1908 of a former priory converted mansion. He proceeded to complete its reconstruction in its present form. In 1937, that Mr. Francis Elvinger became owner. Since his death, his son Gilbert succeeded him.

A short distance from the church on the slope of the hill stands the castle Evecquemont. This building is modern.

The old mansion, built by the descendants of Renaud de Gaillonnet however, left few traces to look among the farm buildings adjoining. For many years, the lords of Evecquemont, too cramped in the residence, had begun building a new stately home not far from the old, on the very spot now occupied the castle.
