Founded on May 20, 1904 by Canon Alfred Bonno, parish priest of Chelles (died in 1921), the SAHC Archaeological and Historical Society of Chelles aims to spread the taste for historical and archaeological research.

Today SAHC, an association governed by the law of 1901, under the chairmanship of Jean-Pierre Thoretton, brings together lovers of history, heritage of Chelles and the region.

The Archaeological and Historical Society of Chelles organizes:

  • A minimum of 5 conferences,
  • exhibitions,
  • excursions during which you visit places steeped in history, museums, ...
  • a paleography class, workshops and working groups!
  • a resource and documents center

We participate in the crossroads of associations where you can meet us as well as during 4 annual open days at Villa MAX.

Each year we publish a quality newsletter dealing with one aspect of our local history. This is often the result of the long-term work of the most passionate of us, including research in the archives.

Young or old, you are interested in history! Whatever your knowledge, come and join us.

For an annual fee, you can attend conferences, receive the Petit-journal, receive our annual publication, register for the Paleography course, participate in our free or paid outings and benefit from a 10% reduction on our previous books and other many advantages!

The association intervened in the 1970s to stop the destruction of the old town. With great difficulty, the Archaeological and Historical Society of Chelles managed to avoid the demolition of a building which, however, hardly differed from the others: shops on the ground floor and apartments upstairs. But a resurrection took place before the eyes of the Chellois: the 13th century bays reappeared, the buttresses resumed their shape and two old churches of the Abbey of Chelles masked by the transformations of the 19th century allowed themselves to be glimpsed.
The association continued for many years and thanks to volunteer work sites, its restoration action to reach the stage of rehabilitation and animation.
