Chennevieres-sur-Marne

4
Chennevières-sur-Marne is a commune in the southeastern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 14.7km from the center of Paris.HistoryPeople have lived on the site of Chennevières-sur-Marne since pre-historic times, the hilly, riverside location being an advantageous spot. The Gauls built villages on the site and began planting vineyards there in the fourth century. The city's name is derived from "Canaveria" which stand for the French word for 'hemp', a locally-grown product providing material for the fabrication of boat cordage. The town prospered until the Hundred Years' War. Locals harnessed the power of the Marne river to turn a flour mill. The river also served the citizens for transport: a ferry linked Chennevières with the nearby town of La Varenne. A bateau-lavoir - a floating laundry service - was anchored in the river until 1865.During the Belle Époque, this village, like many of the rural towns surrounding Paris, became an attractive get-away for urban-weary Parisians. One of its restaurants, l'Ecu de France, became a gathering point for artists in particular.On 7 July 1899, a part of the territory of Chennevières-sur-Marne was detached and merged with a part of the territory of La Queue-en-Brie and a part of the territory of Villiers-sur-Marne to create the commune of Le Plessis-Trévise.TransportChennevières-sur-Marne is served by no station of the Paris Métro, RER, or suburban rail network. The closest station to Chennevières-sur-Marne is La Varenne - Chennevières station on Paris RER line A. This station is located in the neighboring commune of Saint-Maur-des-Fossés, 1.4km from the town center of Chennevières-sur-Marne.
