"Ici est né [here was born] le Pharmacien-Chemiste Antoine-Jérôme Balard 30 September 1802.” The plaque was erected in 1926. Balard's father was a vinegrower and his mother was a cook for another family; they lived in the suburbs. Balard was not only born here, but he was taken in by his godparents who lived here and was raised by them.
