Histoire de Paris

Hôtel Herouet
Ce charmant petit bâtiment de deux étages, au haut comble droit, pourvu d’une élégante tourelle à l’angle de la rue Vieille-du-Temple et de la rue des Francs-Bourgeois, a été construit au début du XVIe siècle par Jean Hérouet, seigneur de Carrières, Trésorier de France. Sa veuve se remaria avec le neveu du Cardinal de la Balue autrefois, emprisonné pár Louis XI. Les propriétaires successifs sous l’Ancien Régime ne sont pas illustres. Dès le XIXe siècle, son rez-de-chaussée a été dénaturé par le commerce. Grâce à son propriétaire, l’érudit Henry d’Allemagne, il a été classé en 1908. Gravement endommagé dans la nuit du 26 août 1944 par une bombe, il a été restauré sans délicatesse. La tourelle en reste le meilleur souvenir.

History of Paris

Hôtel Herouet
This charming little two-story building, with a high right attic, equipped with an elegant turret at the corner of rue Vieille-du-Temple and rue des Francs-Bourgeois, was built at the beginning of the 16th century by Jean Hérouet, lord of Carrières, Treasurer of France. His widow remarried the nephew of Cardinal de la Balue, formerly imprisoned by Louis XI. The successive owners under the Ancien Régime are not famous. From the 19th century, its ground floor was distorted by commerce. Thanks to its owner, the scholar Henry of Germany, it was classified in 1908. Seriously damaged on the night of August 26, 1944 by a bomb, it was restored without care. The turret remains the best memory.
