From American Profile

By Lisa Zhito

LAFAYYETTE, La. -- Southern Louisiana’s Cajun, Creole and American Indian roots are re-created at Vermilionville, a heritage park located on the banks of Bayou Vermilion.

Named after Lafayette’s original moniker, Vermilionville Living History Museum and Folklife Park features 19 restored and reproduced buildings that represent a 17th- and 18th-century town typical of Louisiana’s Acadiana area.

Craftspeople in period clothing demonstrate the folk life of Lafayette’s early settlers, right down to the steaming pot of crawfish étouffée bubbling on the stove.

It wouldn’t be Cajun country without music, and Vermilionville hosts Cajun and zydeco jam sessions every Saturday.

Other activities include boat tours of Bayou Vermilion and signature events such as a traditional Mardi Gras celebration, Acadian Culture Day and the Bayou Days festival.
