In the south of the Eure Department, near Verneuil-sur-Avre, learn more about the history of a village with a wrought-iron destiny and know more about ironwork and the tradition of blacksmiths... Thanks to "grison", a local iron ore, people of Francheville were pioneers in working with iron. In 1835, the village had no less than 400 forges for 1,800 inhabitants, and the last forge in the village closed down in 1988. Travel back in time at this charming little museum that showcases this traditional craft and embodies a whole slice of the village's history.
