History

The Ogier-Fombrun Museum is located in Montrouis, in Haiti, on the renovated ruins of a sugar plantation from the 18th century, built in 1760 by the colonel Guillaume Ogier, and abandoned when he died in 1799 during the revolutionary period.

In the month of March 1977, the remains of this site were entirely redeveloped by an architect named Gérard Fombrun who personally invested many years of his life.
