Lomyre says of the history of this building :

La fonderie du Val d'Osne créée en 1836 par Jean-Pierre Victor André était réputée pour sa fabrique de fonte d'art. Elle a cessé son activité en 1986.

Classé Monument Historique en 1993, le site aujourd'hui à l'abandon est dans un état de délabrement pitoyable.
