Historical continuation of the Castle of the Mesnil-Saint-Denis
Partly surrounded of water ditch, flanked turrets, the field is composed in addition to the castle, of vast commun runs dominated by a splendid dovecote conical trunk of XVIe century and a beautiful shaded park opened with the public.
It is Louis Habert, secretary of Finances of King Henri III (1566) then Ordinary General Trsorier of the Wars (1588) who made build at the end of the Rebirth, in 1589, this residence on the site of a house located in a place named "Boullard". It is on the order of Henri III that it was pledged for him with 200 arpents of ground, that is to say a little more than 84 hectares. By these letters, it received the authorization "to close and close the aforementioned house and its pourpris of ditches such depth that good will seem to him with drawbridge, turns, turrets... and to set it up out of noble ground". Thus was born "Mnil-Habert".
