History of Maison des Mines
The residence is composed of two buildings. The first one was built in 1932 with a capacity of 110 rooms on Saint Jacques Street. The second one was built in 1962 on Pierre Nicole street side.
These two buildings, like all the others in the hilly area of Latin Quarter, are built on top of the catacombs. They are cavities of 20 or 30 meters deep, and the results of limestone mining which have contributed to the construction of Paris. The presence of these catacombs (cherished by the students of Ecole des Mines) has imposed important costly consolidation of groundwork. It has also led to a historical discovery ; an authentic statue of roman god Mercury (1 meter) has been found. It has been donated by the Mining Association of former students of Ecole des Mines to the city of Paris, and is now displayed in Carnavalet Musum for exposition.
