Comte Fernand de Saintignon, a citizen of the place, had a church, a school and a parsonage built. He wanted to expand Lasauvage to a spa. That's why he built a spa hotel, today the Balcon. The project failed, however.

In Lasauvage there was a restaurant that was right on the border between Luxembourg and France. In the center of the economy, a white line was drawn, which indicated the border between the states.
