The Maison Bonchamps

The website Vendéens & Chouans reports concern over the future of the "Maison Bonchamps", 61 Rue de la Basse Meilleraie, Varade, the house where the Vendéan general Bonchamps died of his wounds, on 18th October 1793.  

On 8th June the the commune of Loireauxence rescinded its agreement with the current owner, Le Souvenir Vendéen, to maintain the property as a public exhibition space. Future intentions are as yet unknown.

Plaque added by the sculptor David d'Anger in 1825.
