Ferdinand Marrou's house
Ferdinand Marrou, was born in the french Alps in 1837 and became one of the most famous french worker in wrought iron of the XIXth century. In Rouen, where he arrived in 1863, he is well known for the cathedral pinnacles ; but he also worked on the finials of the Jeanne d'Arc tower, the Gros-Horloge belfry, the law court and the roof of the Saint-Romain church...
For his pleasure and for his publicity, he built his house close to the new railway station and decorated it himself with the help of several artists.
