Martin Nadaud was a famous Creuse mason in the 19th-century, who worked in Paris for some 20 years, who became a symbolic figure of the many Creusois masons and who helped build modern France (35,000 Creusois masons were working across France in the mid 19th-century), eventually become a member of the French parliament.  He is also remembered for his famous saying “In Paris, when the buildings go, everything goes!”.  The family house, only a short drive from Chez Jallot, offers the visitor the opportunity to dive into life in the 19th-century and to learn more about this famous mason and his compatriots.
