SandyH says of the history of this building :

La Fière Tour d'Ostrevant (avec un a et non un e) date du XIIème siècle et fut le donjon des seigneurs de l'Ostrevant, puis remanié sous Charles Quint, sous Louis XIV Vauban améliora les fortifications dont elle était une pièce maîtresse, elle tint une place importante pour la région tout au long de l'Histoire

Elle est connue plus récemment pour avoir "vu" le passage d'Hitler en 1940, qui du haut de la Tour, se fit expliquer la bataille qui s'était déroulée contre le 45ème R.I.

Elle abrite aujourd'hui le Musée d'Ostrevant.
