Rue Pierre Timbaud * before the "Ferme de l'Horloge"


The farm of the clock is built in several stages between the end of the old regime and the eighteenth century. It is a relic of the time when Gennevilliers fell within the abbey of Saint-Denis, feudal lord. It was the setting for the film "The letter Lyon." This rural farmhouse retains a certain allure thanks to its glazed arcades and a small bell tower where the clock was. Restored by the municipality, it is a meeting place for the villagers.
