Abandoned mansion in France

Mansion of Three Columns – Angervilliers

Angervilliers is a little city in the Essonne department where we can find this abandoned mansion called The 3 columns. Located right next to the City Hall, this building remains the only thing to see in this city, with an abandoned park of 50 hectares since now ten years. Built in the early twentieth century, the Anglo-Norman style mansion still resists to the time’s destructive force. The mansion was the property of the Weisweiller family and they lived the horror during the WWII when the Nazis came. The husband committed suicide at home at the arrival of soldiers and his wife Betty was deported to Auschwitz without return. Then it was occupied by the Nazis in 1940. The last owner was Gustave Leven, at the head of the Perrier drink, who died in 2008.
