Vermilionville LIVING HISTORY MUSEUM FOUNDATION, INC.

The Vermilionville Living History Museum Foundation, Inc., is a non-profit organization with 501(c)(3) status. The purpose of the Foundation is to support and enhance Vermilionville's mission as a living history museum, stated as follows: 

"Vermilionville is a living history museum, whose purpose is to preserve and interpret authentic elements of folklife cultures of the Attakapas area between 1765 and 1890. The celebration of these cultures includes language; music and dance; the performance of traditional arts and artifacts and landscaping; architecture; historic costuming; beliefs and customs; cuisine; and traditional holidays and festivals. Vermilionville seeks to enlighten visitors and youth about the history and culture of Acadiana and to help ethnic groups of this area gain a better understanding and appreciation of their own cultures and those of others in this multi-ethnic region." 

Vermilionville board members support the museum with their time and expertise, and they work closely with Vermilionville's full-time staff. By virtue of the foundation's 501(c)(3) status, they can and do apply for grants on behalf of Vermilionville. The Foundation Board meets bi-monthly and elects new officers annually. If you are interested in attending a Foundation board meeting, please contact Board Secretary Deborah Simeral, deborahsimeral@gmail.com

Individuals may make tax-deductible donations to Vermilionville through the Foundation by sending a check to 300 Fisher Road, Lafayette, LA 70508.
