Cette cache est la cache finale de la série « les Barroches ». Dans chacune des 2 caches précédentes, vous avez trouvé un indice. Mis bout à bout, ces 2 indices vous conduisent à la cache finale.
Les coordonnées indiquées sont celles de la place du village où vous garerez votre voiture.

Courcelles fut jusqu'au XVIIIème siècle le centre d'une baronnie ; Courcelotte. En 1245, Simon de Châteauvillain fait construire, au bord de l'Aujon, un château-fort entouré de larges fossés. Le puissant Baron de Courcelotte est aussi seigneur de Ternat et de Chameroy. Pendant des siècles, ce château est occupé par les seigneurs de Plaine, puis par la famille de Saulx, tous vassaux du seigneur d'Arc-en-Barrois.
En bordure de la place, en 1660, un riche marchand de Courcelles, Euvrard Belime et sa femme Anne Cudel, font ériger une chapelle indépendante de celle du château. Son autel est placé sous la protection de Sainte Anne, en remerciement envers la généreuse donatrice.
De cette période fastueuse il ne reste aujourd’hui du château-fort (démoli après la Révolution) qu’une entrée de la cave voutée.
