Like its neighbours of the community, Champagne-sur-Seine puts down its roots in the 12th century as testified by its church Notre-Dame, part of an outstanding building heritage along with the church Saint-François d'Assise and a Russian Orthodox chapel!

The old Champagne, with its origins on steep hillsides, skirts the "New" Champagne which sprung up at the dawn of the 20th century, both housing and industry being built at the same time. Schneider, Jeumont, ABB, whatever the requirements of its important firms were, the town was planned to answer their needs in buildings and manpower, on sites bordering the Seine.

Several streets have kept the stamp of these all powerful firms which shaped the town to their requirements to better serve their needs for production. These rows of workers' houses and blocks built at the factory-doors are part of our national heritage.

For certain planners, Champagne-sur-Seine is the first "new town" of the twentieth century. du XXe siècle. Indeed, the workers' housing, built almost simultaneously with the plant, are not rejected on the outskirts of town but make the connection between the factory and the old town. These "blocks" also included shops and stores that were necessary for the daily life of the new population.

Ancienne usine Schneider

Outstanding architecture of the former Schneider factory, a real "industrial cathedral" from the beginning of the 20th century.
At the beginning of the 20th century, when Schneider decided to open a branch related to the development of electricity, it chose Champagne-sur-Seine for its ease of access with Le Creusot and its proximity to the French capital.
The workers are brought from Le Creusot and housed in the premises of the factory.The industrial buildings are at the center of an enclosed domain, where the housing and the gardens of the directors and employees are arranged.
It is in this central dynamos assembly hall that the 1,500-kilowatt to 600-watt switches required for the operation of the Parisian subway are built.
