A little history…
In 1939 Mr. Henri Morazé and his wife Renée Hardy became the owners. Mr. Morazé, a wise businessman, made his fortune in the 1930s. He remains an emblematic figure of the archipelago. After his death, the heirs sold the land and the building in 1987.
Since the acquisition of this building and fifteen years of restoration, the Heritage Museum opened its doors in 2003.
