HistoryAs of the 18th century, Condé is one of the most active cities of the department. The major part of the inhabitants is devoted then to the manufacture of the fabric, cloths and the flax. The cutlery is also famous. At the beginning of the 19th century, the small hydraulic spinning mills settle in Condé. The first printing works goes back to 1829.
In the years 1860, the city is with the apogee of its economic development with large a Textile industry (one counts 55 hydraulic spinning mills then, 8.000 weaving looms) to which is added a very active craft industry. It obtains in 1868, to accompany this development, the creation of the Railroad of Switzerland Normande on the basis of Flers and joining Caen in 1874. With the Second world war, Condé knows his most tragic hours. The city is destroyed to 95% by the bombardments which will make 252 victims on the whole. The rebuilding of the City is completed in 1963 with the inauguration of the town hall.
Condé-sur-Noireau then becomes the “goddaughter of war” of the town of Vincennes (the Valley-of-Marne), which helped with its rebuilding.
