In September 1914, at the start of the First World War, Senlis suffered German reprisals following fire from the French rearguard against the occupying troops. One hundred and ten houses on rue de République and rue Bellon were burned down, including the courthouse and the station. Eugène Odent, mayor of the city is shot with five other of his fellow citizens.
