Learn about the tradition behind Easter egg dyeing as well as natural dyeing techniques that were used before modern day food coloring was around. Regular admission. Memberships honored.

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.
