Childhood home of Robespierre

Maximilian de Robespierre (1758-1794) lived in this house from 1787 to 1789. A lawyer, a judge at the episcopal court, and an avid reader of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, he was elected in 1789 as representative of the third estate of Artois at the Estates-General. Today his house is given over to the Musée du Compagnonnage, a museum showing Compagnons du Tour de France masterpieces (carpentry, cabinetmaking etc).
