History

The history of the market square is closely linked to that of Sablonville. This district of the commune of Neuilly-sur-Seine takes its name from the sandy plain (formerly known as the «Plaine des Sablons “) and the housing estate that was created there from 1830 onwards.

 

The Plaine des Sablons underwent several notable historical events, such as the great Reviews of the Sablons during which Louis XV used this plain, starting in 1750, to review the French and Swiss guards that made up the garrison of Paris.

 

Another highlight of the district was the first potato crops of the agronomist and pharmacist Antoine Parmentier in 1787. Thanks to his research in agrobiology and the cultivated fields on the Sablons plains, many French famine victims could turn to this vegetable and no longer suffer from the lack of food.
