Long Description:

At the revolution, the chapel was seized as a national property and put on sale, the estimate was made only on May 22, 1811, and the alienation on November 10,

After several transactions, it became the property of M. Desportes who, on November 26, 1826, donated it to the parish factory.

It was on this occasion that a cross was erected to replace the three-cross calvary destroyed by the revolution, and which is still to be seen today with the date of 1827 on the pedestal.

A la révolution, la chapelle est saisie comme bien national et mise en vente, l’estimation n’en est faite que le 22 mai 1811 et l’aliénation le 10 novembre suivant.

Après plusieurs transactions, elle devint propriété de M. Desportes qui en fit don, le 26 novembre 1826, à la fabrique de la paroisse.

C’est à cette occasion que fut érigée une croix, pour remplacer le calvaire à trois croix détruit à la révolution, et que l’on voit encore de nos jours avec, sur le piédestal, la date de 1827.
