Inhabitants from well established local families are known as hauts-banais or hautes-banaises according to gender. This is a reference to the hilly territory in which the village is located and which at one time was owned by the Abbey of nearby Étival. 'Ban' is an old word for a territory while 'haut' (high) is a reference to the uneven topography.
The commanding position of the little plateau, between the valleys of the Meurthe and of the Valdange provides remarkable views towards Raon-l'Étape and Saint-Dié-des-Vosges respectively to the north and to the east, accessible to motorists travelling along the departmental road RD32 which connects Saint-Dié with the Haut du Bois Pass and the road to Rambervillers.
A principal source of employment is a car parts plant owned by the Faurecia company.
