Population[edit]

Population of Lennoncourt Municipality

The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known through the population censuses carried out in the commune since 1793. As from 1 January 2009, the legal populations of the communes have been published annually in the framework of a census which is now based on an annual information gathering, concerning successively all the communal territories during a period of five years. For municipalities with less than 10 000 inhabitants, a census survey covering the entire population is carried out every five years, with the legal populations of the intermediate years being estimated by interpolation or extrapolation1. For the municipality, the first comprehensive census under the new system was carried out in 2008.[1][2]

In 2014, the municipality had 597 inhabitants, an increase of 2.23% compared to 2009 (Meurthe-et-Moselle: 0.15%, France excluding Mayotte: 2.49%).

Landmarks[edit]

  • Numerous Gallo-Roman remains found in the 19th century.
  • Château de Lenoncourt 13th / 14th century: Founded by Thierry de Nancy. Protected under Historical Monuments.
  • Sondages salins de la valley of Roanne(also on commune of Varangéville) in Lenoncourt. Founded in 1855, the company Daguin had five groups of soundings in the valleys of Meurthe and Roanne. Boreholes are sheltered by well-structured pyramidal structures or in agglomerated crassier buildings with a two-sided roof. These saline soundings constitute an exceptional vestige of a mode of exploitation which had its full extension from the 1880s to the Second World War and have been registered with the historical monuments since 1986. The soundings were closed in 1967.
  • Church with a tower and nave 18th century, choir 15th century.
  • Presbytery 18th century.
