Bevaix

Bevaix
Bevaix is a municipality in the district of Boudry in the canton of Neuchâtel in Switzerland. The village of Bevaix (pop. 3603 in 2000) is sited in front of a small plateau, near Lake Neuchâtel, on a location showing both Bronze Age and Neolithic settlement and a priory dating to 998. Discovery nearby of several dugout canoes and boats illuminated techniques of shipbuilding in Gallo-Roman times. The village was predominantly agricultural until the building of a railway station in 1860, and the drainage of the surrounding wetlands around 1900, when the area became increasingly residential. Local industry focuses on microtechnology.
