Pierre Musy

Pierre-Joseph MUSY was born in 1808 in Grandvillard (Switzerland) and when he married Marie- Marguerite Castella he also became a citizen of Albeuve.  He was the prefect (magistrate) of Gruyère (1857-1873) and presided the Great Council in 1886 up to his death in 1888.

Pierre defined his political belief by saying: "I am governmental before all."  The Hotel de l'Ange in Albeuve became property of the Musy family when Pierre married Marie- Marguerite.  The Auberge de l'Ange always welcomed travelers and was known for its restaurant at a time in history when the Fribourg railway had not reached the higher valley of the Sarine river.  This hotel was destroyed in 1886 by a terrible fire which ravaged a large portion of the town of Albeuve.
