Long Description:
[F]

Le « Site des 3 bornes » est l’unique endroit où 3 départements de la Lorraine se touchent.
Le département français est une division territoriale de la France. L'histoire des départements français, depuis la création des départements en 1790, résulte principalement des ajustements successifs du territoire de la France.
La perte de l'Alsace-Lorraine, en 1871, entraîne la création d'un nouveau département, celui de Meurthe-et-Moselle (constituée des parties des départements de Meurthe et de Moselle restées françaises).
Le nouveau découpage du territoire a montré que le département des Vosges, de la Meuse et de la Meurthe-et-Moselle se côtoyaient en un seul et unique point . Le « point géographique » a été matérialisé par 3 bornes dont il en reste une debout.
Ce tripoint existait avant la création des régions en 1956, les départements étaient à cette époque le premier niveau de division nationale

The "Site des 3 bornes" is the only place where 3 departments of Lorraine touch.
The French department is a territorial division of France. The history of the French departments, since the creation of the departments in 1790, results mainly from the successive adjustments of the territory of France.
The loss of Alsace-Lorraine, in 1871, led to the creation of a new department, that of Meurthe-et-Moselle (made up of parts of the departments of Meurthe and Moselle remained French).
The new division of the territory showed that the department of Vosges, Meuse and Meurthe-et-Moselle were side by side in a single point. The "geographical point" has been materialized by 3 monuments of which one remains standing.
This tripoint existed before the creation of the regions in 1956, the departments were at that time the first level of national division,
