Artisans


Vermilionville Living History Museum & Folklife Park invites visitors to step back in time with a tour or self-guided leisure walk through its historic village. Walkways connect each of the buildings and travel through picturesque moss draped oak and cypress trees along the Bayou Vermilion.

Vermilionville contains a number of original fully restored structures dating in a period of time from 1765 through 1890, as well as recreations of other buildings of this period. The Artisans who work daily in the park provide a glimpse back to a time gone by where Acadians and Creoles provided for themselves and their families.

Artisans provide demonstrations on a variety of essential crafts performed by the early Acadians and Creoles. Please take a moment to read about some of the Artisans who are dedicated to their craft and to the presentation to all visitors.

Want a piece of history? You can have it here at Vermilionville.

Many of the products our Artisans produce are available for purchase in the Vermilionville Gift Shop.
