Welcome to Vermilionville

Vermilionville’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.

Calendar & Events

Vermilionville is open six days a week, Tuesday through Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Please keep in mind that we stop taking admission at 3 p.m. daily as it takes approximately an hour to an hour and thirty minutes to tour our historic village.

WETLAND PLANTS ARE PART OF A LARGER PICTURE

Every time it rains, the water that lands in your yard has to go somewhere. Some of it either soaks into the ground or evaporates, but during a heavy rain most of that water will become “surface runoff.” Surface runoff water will flow across your yard, into ditches and coulees eventually making its way into the Bayou Vermilion.

Along the way, this water picks up pollutants such as oil, pesticides, loose soils, excess fertilizers and trash. This stormwater runoff, and the pollutants it carries is the biggest threat to the water quality of the Bayou Vermilion.

Through a grant with the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality, the Bayou Vermilion District is able to demonstrate five approaches that homeowners can use to improve the quality of stormwater entering the Vermilion River.
