Maison Saint-Dizier (Old Stone House)
I took this photo on Saturday of the Maison Saint-Dizier situated at the foot of Lloyd George Street, also called The old Stone House by some Verdunites. As you can see there is major reconstruction work presently going on this oldest house in Verdun built in 1710 wich will be 300 years old in 2010. Archeological diggings are also going on and eventually the old artifacts will be displayed and hopefully will become a museum. This old stone house was at times abandoned, used as a city warehouse, legion hall, dance hall etc. Our society (SHGV) is closely involved with this project and I will keep you all posted on the progress.
