It was built of 1862 to 1865 on ordering of the Pallu company by the architect Louis Auguste Boileau who adopted an innovative way, the employment of a metal structure and a masonry of concrete according to the Coignet process, imitating the stone, couvrement by a system the pendentive ones with metal veins.

In 1866, creation of Le Vésinet  parish by Napoleon III.
In 1896, addition of a sacristy in the choir and two side chapels connected by an alley designed by the architect Gilbert.
From 1901 to 1903, decoration of the vaults by Maurice Denis. This church was very criticized at this time because of its morphology but also of the Coignet process that caused black marblings on the walls.
