Ventron is first of all known for the hermitage “Brother Joseph” (Frère Joseph). It was built in 1757 by residents in honor of the kindness of Pierre Joseph Formet, who had been chased away from his own family.
The Textile Museum shows all the tricks of the spinners and weavers, and the development of the textile industry in the 18th century. In the house of trade (Maison Artisanal) you can learn about rural everyday life in the Vosges.
