Military observatory in 1914
The Montagne de Reims (283 metres above sea level) was used as a military observatory during the First World War. The posts extend from the Pompelle fort to Suippes. The Montagne de Reims Regional Nature Park keep traces of the violent fighting and has eleven military cemeteries. The Mont-Bœuf (222 metres) where the Verzenay mill is located (photo) is no exception to the rule. Underground galleries and concrete chambers were built there. Partly destroyed by a shell in 1914, the windmill was restored in 1949.
