Grammont hospital, French Heritage monument to Villersexel

Located north-east out of the village, outside the boundaries of the old city wall disappeared, Villersexel private hospital was built between 1753 and 1771 on the initiative and at the expense of Ferdinand de Grammont, Lord of Villersexel, to treat the poor. Plans have been prepared by the famous architect Nicolas Nicole. All included a rectangular led by a central stem on each of the long sides, between a confined Court of a Chaplaincy to the East and building a barn in the West
* and a garden in the city. In the 18th century, the building was completed by a characteristic furniture remains in large part, which is classified as historical monuments. In 1893, a neo-Gothic Chapel is tucked away in the North stem, on the plans of the Parisian architect Eugène Gustave Edmond Danjoy, author also of the new chateau de Villersexel. Currently retirement home, Grammont Hospital experienced significant changes in its surroundings with the construction of many buildings. Despite this, and abusive restorations (coatings for example), there is a fairly well documented work of one of the most important comtois architects of the 18th century, which preserves a furniture set including a pharmacy classified historical monuments.
