Description of this building by Manuel Bazaille :

Onville, le château vu depuis la Grande rue. (Cliché septembre 2012). Bâti au XVIIIème siècle, endommagé lors de la première guerre mondiale, ce château fut restauré dans les années qui suivirent et certaines parties furent reconstruites dans le style des années 1920. Il sert désormais de maison de retraite.
