Vermilionville Living History & Folklife Park
The Vermilionville Living History Museum & Park was formed by the Bayou Vermilion District to preserve and demonstrate the cultural resources of the region. Vermilionville portrays the rich cultures of the Cajuns, Creoles and Native Americans. On the banks of the Bayou Vermilion, the historic village contains 19 structures, including seven original homes, which are filled with artifacts reflecting life in the Acadiana area between 1765 and 1890. A detailed interpretive walking brochure guides visitors through the village. In many of the structures, costumed historical interpreters authentically demonstrate traditional crafts or musical styles with a distinctly French accent. Cooking demonstrations, a full-service restaurant and gift shop add to the experience.
