Le Grenier de Marie (Marie’s grain store)

Located on the edge of the village of Rougemont, the "Grenier de Marie" (Marie’s barn) dates back to 1688. Although the name suggests otherwise, it was not a dwelling but a shelter where locals stored all kinds of things. It was located away from the main house to protect its contents in case of fire.

Food, cereals, linen, clothes and valuable things were safeguarded thanks to the imposing locks - still visible today - and an elevated design. In addition to this architectural feature, the facade is decorated with a Latin inscription which is unique in the region.

In the past, granaries were a real part of the way of life for Pays-d'Enhaut local people. Besides the old barns, some shelters had more astonishing functions. For example, people in farms far outside the village stored their best clothes in places called "clothes barns", where they used to come to change before going to Sunday worship.
