Location of metro station

Corentin Celton is a station on line 12 of the Paris Métro in the commune of Issy-les-Moulineaux.

History

The station opened on 24 March 1934 as part of extension of the line from Porte de Versailles to Mairie d'Issy.

In 1868, the old people's home or hospital of the Petits Ménages relocated from the 7th arrondissement to Issy-les-Moulineaux, leaving a large area for the expansion of Le Bon Marché department store. The metro station was originally called Petits Ménages because it was located near the old people's home. In 1945 the hospital and station were renamed to commemorate Corentin Celton, an employee of the old people's home and a member of the French resistance, shot by the Nazis.
