The history of this site began in the year 1870 when the authorization was given to start the construction of the “Brasseur” factory. In 1872 the first iron ore furnace was heated. The factory was closed in the year 1977. Since the shutdown of the last furnaces in 1997, the last buildings still in use have been left abandoned.
So far the history of this building. As you can see on the ‘Terre Rouge in the glory days’ postcards, this is only a small part of the original factory. All in all pretty small and uninteresting, but still worth to pop in while you’re in town.
