Vermilionville

November 30, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

While visiting my family in the heart of Acadiana we made some time to reflect on my Cajun roots.  We visited Vermilionville, a living history museum and folklife park that was established in 1990 to promote and propagate the cultural history of the Acadian, Native American, and Creole people that lived in Acadiana from 1765 to 1890. 

"The park sits on a 23-acre site on the banks of the Bayou Vermilion in Lafayette Louisiana with 19 attractions, including seven restored original homes with more than 13 local artisans that provide demonstrations on a variety of essential crafts performed by the early settlers."  If you are in Lafayette Louisiana, I highly recommend you stop by Vermilionville and experience the Cajun history.

Here are a few select images from our visit.
