School City Hall, French Heritage monument to Ostel

Built back from the street behind a square, the Town Hall-School Ostel is fully incorporated d´un regular equipment of stone hourdées in lime mortar. The brick here has a strictly decorative role. Berry lintels are reinforced concrete. The symmetry generated by the harmonious distribution of five openings is disrupted by the presence of a small corps advanced to the right with the fire pump. The entrance arches is highlighted by the octagonal oculus which overcomes it, bearing the date of execution of the building, itself capped with a roof to everything. The mechanical tile roof is long pans and hilltops. The residential part is capped roof broken in Pavilion. Each portion of part and other door welcomes a function (City Hall left, the school centre, housing of l´instituteur right). The Winery is located in the lobby, the Chamber and the cuisine of l´instituteur. The attic welcome two Attic rooms placed on the l´instituteur housing. The Interior is paved tiles of red tiles of Beauvais. The town hall was rebuilt by Pierre Moreaux, architect at vailly, and inaugurated in 1928: a sign placed above the entrance, indicates the date of construction. During the period of reconstruction, the temporary school was the site of the current church. In May 1940, an air raid damaged the building.
