L'église d'Augne

Datant du XVè siècle, cette église est connue pour être la plus petite de Haute-Vienne. Elle se démarque par une architecture sobre, abritant toutefois un des plus anciens vitraux de la région (vers 1400). Ce vitrail est classé au titre d'objet parmi les Monuments Historiques depuis 1894. A l'image de l'église, la nef et le choeur sont de petites dimensions. L'entrée se fait sous un clocher à flèche par un portail sobre. Deux chapelles latérales complètent la nef.

École de Vervialle

La seconde partie du XIXème siècle, voit s'organiser l'enseignement public en France. Plusieurs lois en fixent le cadre et incitent les communes à construire des locaux adaptés. L'école de Vervialle sera bâtie en 1903. Éloignée du bourg de près de 4 km, elle permet aux enfants d'éviter ce trajet quotidien, sur des chemins souvent impraticables en hiver. Le toit de l'école sera emporté par un ouragan en février 1941, privant momentanément les enfants d'enseignement. En 1901, Vervialle comptait 153 habitants dont environ 40 enfants en âge d'être scolarisés. L'exode rural va progressivement vider nos communes. Riche de 648 habitants en 1901, Augne n'en compte plus qu'une centaine aujourd'hui. Ce déclin démographique, va entraîner la fermeture de ces écoles rurales.
