Quartier Necker - Paris 15


Before the surrounding villages were incorporated into the city of Paris in 1840, the Necker district was an uninhabited area between Paris and the village of Vaugirard, which went on to become the Saint-Lambert district. It takes its name from the hospital founded in 1778 by the wife of Jacques Necker, General Director of Finance for Louis XVI, which was renamed Necker Hospital in 1802.
