In 1857, the project of reconstruction of a larger Church requires to consider the rebuilding of the Hall beside the Lot, on the location of the hotel of Vassal acquired in 1850 to rebuild the Church (first project abandoned). The building was built between 1865 and 1867, by the caca contractor, under the supervision of the architect of the city. Renovations are carried out in 1912. In 1962, the halle is amended, extended at both ends and in the square, with addition of shops: the elevation on the Lot is preserved and increased on the sides, the other elevations are redone in brick, and the monumental span is removed.
