If these missions connect with you and you are interested in making a donation to support the work of the Bayou Vermilion District, please follow the link below.  We are always thankful for the support of our community, and your help will make a difference.

Vermilionville Living History Museum’s mission is to increase appreciation for the history, culture, and natural resources of the Native Americans, Acadians, Creoles, and peoples of African descent in the Attakapas region through the end of the 1800s. Through historic interpretation and conservation along the Bayou Vermilion, we strive to educate guests on the interactions of these groups and the connections between past and contemporary folklife, thus empowering guests to apply these lessons from our shared histories.

Bayou Vermilion District’s purpose is to improve the water quality and the aesthetics of the Bayou Vermilion within the Parish of Lafayette in an effort to promote the bayou as a recreational and cultural asset; to create and control a new type of viable economic development adjacent to Bayou Vermilion so as to provide a diversified economic base for the City and Parish of Lafayette; and to do any and all other acts which would enhance the general condition of the Bayou Vermilion.
