A single storey house with a 4-sided roof was built in 1724 on a Company concession by dutchman Gilbert Willman. It was modified and extended by successive owners: two 4-sided roof houses were built on each sides, around 1850 the storey and the verandah are added. In 1838 was born poet Leon Dierx, the owner's grand son.
In 1906 it was bought by M.D. Déramond. He used to storey as his private hospital, he was said to have an inclination for amputation. In 1924 was born his grand son, Raymond Barre, who would become a french politician (first minister under President Valéry Giscard d’Estaing). In 1925, he remodels the garden into a garden "à la française". Now a projet is being set up in order to restore the creol garden, much more adapted to the climate.
It was bought and restored by the region administration in 1983. It now hosts the Listed Building officer.
