Projet social novateur d'Emile-Justin Menier, la cité ouvrière a été bâtie entre 1874 et 1911. Elle comprend près de 300 logements individuels et plusieurs équipements collectifs. Sa modernité architecturale, urbaine et sociale, lui a valu de nombreuses récompenses aux Expositions universelles. Plusieurs monuments sont inscrits au titre des Monuments historiques.
