Post 5. Old Goat Pen

The small building that now houses the village hall, was once a pen for goats and sheep, called partières in dialect.

After about twenty-five years of abandonment, in 1986, the pen was transformed into a village hall that can hold about fifty people. In 2006 the roof was renovated. In the 1950s, the villagers had about eighty goats and forty sheep. Goats provided milk when cows were in the pastures, while the sheep provided the wool needed for making clothes. Each family had two or three goats that schoolchildren were responsible for. They took them to graze in the forests that belonged to the Bourgeoisie. Every morning, they gathered in the pen, and were driven back in the evening when the sun set on Saint-Luc.
