La personnalité la plus illustre de la famille, fut le géneral Raymond-Adolphe Séré de Rivières (1815-1895).

[English]
Hôtel Séré de Rivières
Sturctural changes on the Hotel Sere de Rivieres in the 17th and 18th centuries left intact two overhanging corner turrets, or bartixans, which are characteristic of the Renaissance.
The Seré de Rivières family were made nobles in the 18th century, and their ties to Albi's history and the pastel trade dates back to the 16th century. The most illustrious member of the family was general Raymond-Adolphe Séré de Rivières (1815-1895). His engineering of fortifications in eastern France after the defeat of 1879 earned him the sobriquet "the Vauban of the 19th century", and general de Gaulle referred to him as instrumental in the victories at the Marne and Verdun.
