Actual picures of the Menhir Dumoulin!

Le Menhir Dumoulin on its current location.

It did not take a very long time to the Jean-Baptiste Degoux Society getting to the precise actual location of the Menhir Dumoulin.

Using a fine ruse we could convince the actual occupant to let us enter the historical site and without him knowing, the Society got away with some fine snapshots of the standing stone.

But this all not after he treatened us to an abundant meal, inluding wine and trappist beers and music.

Jean-Baptiste Degoux and the masses

After the dramatic bankruptcy of the ' Frères Degoux Dolmens et Menhirs ', things did not work out as they should have done for Jean-Baptiste Degoux.
The Society wants to be honest on this.

Every time he had to leave the house, be it only to get a loaf of bread, the masses gathered on the streets to catch a glimpse of his miserable person.

But everyone knowing the real Degoux-spirit realizes this situation only tempted him to make new plans for the future.

It was in this period Jean-Baptiste Degoux decided to leave the town of Ghent and move to the south of Belgium, to start a new business.
