THE HOUSE OF HISTORY
Founded in 1973, our association's aim is to study history in the broadest sense of the term in the area encompassing the "Challans Gois Communauté" community of municipalities and the wider north-western Vendée region.
It collects and preserves all documents relating to this area, preserves the historical heritage of the Challans area and its region, and uses all possible means to publicise the history of the Challans area, its surroundings and north-western Vendée.
The association also aims to be a place of information, training, exchange and awareness-raising for the general public and young people, particularly schoolchildren.
At the same time, it aims to be a forum for reflection in the fields of history, heritage, architecture, the arts, urban planning, landscape, the environment and related disciplines.
Finally, the association's role is to pass on, educate and share the local history of our region with the widest possible audience.
