Pierre-Joseph MUSY was born in 1808 in Grandvillard (Switzerland) and when he married Marie- Marguerite Castella he also became a citizen of Albeuve. He was the prefect (magistrate) of Gruyère (1857-1873) and presided the Great Council in 1886 up to his death in 1888.
Pierre defined his political belief by saying: "I am governmental before all." The Hotel
de l'Ange in Albeuve became property of the Musy family when Pierre married Marie- Marguerite. The Auberge de l'Ange always welcomed travelers and was known for its
restaurant at a time in history when the Fribourg railway had not reached the higher valley of the Sarine river. This hotel was destroyed in 1886 by a terrible fire
which ravaged a large portion of the town of Albeuve.
