Thomas-François Dalibard lived at 15 rue du Colonel Fabien, a classical eighteenth century mansion. He was a naturalist and a disciple of Georges-Louis Leclerc de Buffon. He translated and published the works of Carl Linnaeus thus introducing Linnaean nomenclature in France. Also a devoted physicist, he tested the experimental ideas of Benjamin Franklin at his house, completing the first capture electrical charge from lightning. Thus, the lightning rod was born at Marly-la-Ville.
