The town of Lafayette was once called Vermillionville after the Vermillion River. What is Vermillionville today is a folk art and cultural center of the Cajun and Creole people. It recreates what life use to be for those people between 1765 and 1890. On the grounds there are 19 buildings including 6 restored original homes which are filled with artifacts and living history. At La Maison des Culture, an Acadian home built in the 1840s, we were able to look at an exposed wall on the porch which has the bousillage which I mentioned in a posting of two days ago. It was interesting to actually see the mud and Spanish moss bricks.
