The castle of Blérancourt, built between 1612 and 1619 by the French architect Salomon de Brosse for the Potier de Gesvres family, is one of the first buildings of classical architecture.
In 1917, Blérancourt Castle, located a few kilometres from the front lines, became the headquarters of a humanitarian organization created by Anne Morgan to help the civilian populations of the Aisne, hard hit by the fighting.
