History

For centuries, the city's fortifications were a major feature of the Verlorenkost neighbourhood. In 1807, Verlorenkost was rattled by a deadly gunpowder explosion that devastated a large part of the city.

Bonnevoie-Nord expanded as its population rapidly increased at the beginning of the 20th century, leading to the construction of a series of social housing projects. In 1925, a new primary school was built on Rue du Verger to accommodate this influx, along with a number of sports fields. In 2003, the old Gendarmerie buildings from the 1970s were expanded and converted into the present-day police station complex.
