    With its distinctive architecture featuring crow-stepped gables and typical, white Soissonnais stone, Blérancourt belonged to the Lords of Coucy until 1230. It was also the childhood home of the revolutionary, Saint-just. Although the village was partly destroyed by shelling during World War I, it was nevertheless chosen by the American ladies, Anne Morgan and Ann Murray Dike, as their headquarters to help local people and coordinate aid for rebuilding the region.
