We will plan on two opportunities to visit Vermilionville in November on a Wednesday and a Saturday. On each day we will meet at 9:00 am and plan to depart at 9:30 am.
Vermilionville is a living history museum and folklife park in Lafayette whose mission is to increase the appreciation of the history, culture and natural resources of the Native Americans, Acadians, Creoles and people of African descent in the Attakapas region throughout the end of the 1800’s. The village is situated between Bayou Vermillion and Petit Bayou and is the original site of the early settlement call Vermilionville that grew into modern day Lafayette. These will be relaxed days with plenty of time to explore the many buildings, exhibits, collections and gardens and interact with interpreters dressed in period clothing demonstrating traditional crafts. There are also collections of furnishings, appliances, tools, house wears, decorative items and boats that were used during that time period. Also, you will be able to visit the Acadian Healer’s Garden that has a large variety of living plants that have be used for healing for hundreds of years. There is a restaurant on the property as well as a gift shop that sells some of the crafts made on site.
