Jeanne d'Arc, a.k.a. Joan of Arc, was born in Domrémy at this location to Jacques d'Arc and Isabelle Romée in 1412.

She began receiving visions to expel the English in the gardens near this location in 1424, when she was twelve years old.

Today, the birthplace is a museum. From the Lorraine Region tourism website:

"The house where Joan of Arc was born was purchased in 1818 by the Vosges Département, and listed as an Historical Monument in 1840. It has been preserved and restored. Its façade is decorated with a tympanum sculpted with coats of arms from the 15th century, and a statue of Joan in armour, kneeling. Inside, you can visit four rooms: the room where she was born, Joan's bedroom, the storeroom and the brothers' room."
