This is the house where General Marquis de La Fayette spent the night from the 5 to the 6 October 1789. This is the house of his in-laws : 1 rue Carnot in Versailles; and it is here that the hero of the American Revolution earned himself the nick-name of General Morpheus. The building is right in front of the Hotel Reservoir, the former residence of Madame de Pompadour, within a three minute walk to Chateau; so, I imagine that when the National Guard soldiers reported to their general that the palace had been invaded, he brushed his teeth, god dressed, had a cup of coffee with a freshly-baked croissant and was off to meet the dawning of a new era! That morning La Fayette accomplished the program of the French Revolution, he made Louis XVI sign the Bill of Rights and the Abolition of Privileges and transported the royal family to the golden cage at Tuileries. This is the morning when the absolute monarchy was reduced to the constitutional one and when Versailles ceased to be the capital of France, and became a quiet provincial town with a ghost palace.
