Au n°10 de la rue fut édifié sous Louis XV l'hôtel de Biéville ou de Nolivos. C'est sous Louis-Philippe que furent ouverts les deax passages couverts, en 1845 pour le passage Jouffroy, en 1846 pour le passage Verdeau. Le premier fut créé sur une partie des jardins de l'hôtel Aguado (actuelle mairie).

The Grange Bateliere in the Middle Ages was a fortified farm (Grange Bataillée). This name was later given to a small water race, which was removed during the late eighteenth century.

It was under Louis Philippe that two arcades opened for the passage Jouffroy, in 1845, and the Passage Verdeau in 1846. The first was created on part of the Aguado hotel gardens (current town hall).
