·      A small town existing in the ninth century was abandoned, perhaps because of the incursion of the Normans on St Benoît in 883. The village reconstructed around 1050 around the Motte-des-Bruyeres and for two centuries he brought this name. Then Gilon de la Chapelle, a high dignitary of the kingdom, received the chapter of Sens Cathedral permission to build a chapel on his land in 1240 to the " Granges " and dependent Bruyeres. The chapel remains the basic structure of the present village church that erected around it.
·      From Castle Bruyère, remains today a square tower. Other strongholds on the town: Motte-de- Gratteloup (the loft of Grattes-Loups was an appointment hunting at the time, there are more remnants thereof) Ouchamps whose castle was remodeled in 1890.
