Clichy yesterday...

Clichy, originally named Clippiacum, owes its existence to the construction of a Gallo-Roman villa near the present town center. In the early days of the Middle Ages, the area was densely wooded and afforded shelter to small game animals, "gibiers de garenne", whence its name Clichy-la-Garenne (Clichy the warren). From Childéric 1st to Philippe II Auguste, the kings of France set their seal upon Clichy through their historical writings. During Dagobert's reign, Clichy was the capital of the Franc kingdom. From 1612 to 1623, Vincent de Paul was a priest at the Saint-Médard church, the oldest in town. After the Revolution, economic activities increased. At that time, Clichy was the town of cleaners and launderers. This is at the origins of the famous "Goulue" who danced on the stage at the Moulin Rouge in 1889. In the XIXth century, at the beginning of the industrial revolution, the Maës and Appert fine glass-makers, known the world over, began their activities in Clichy. Later, in 1950, Citroën became one of the first major manufacturers to enrich the economic life of our town.


...and today

Today, in spite of its expensive development, Clichy has still its "village" atmosphere which you are bound to find attractive. With a constant concern to maintain its balance, identity and traditions, Clichy is building for the future. Thanks to a housing policy tailored to its population, local management based on solidarity and prevention, and the many cultural and sporting activities, Clichy is constantly renewing itself to keep in step with its own time.
