Vermillionville has a number of authentically recreated houses from the early settlement of Creole and Cajun people in the area. The houses have been recreated as close as possible to the original designs using the same materials. The Beau Bassin House was built in 1840 and used a combination of Creole and Greek Revival architecture. The Fausse Point Home was once the home of Amand Brossard son of the Acadian Resistance Fighter Joseph Broussard. The Maison Boucvalt is a classic Acadian small house design. The Maison Mouton is a reconstruction of a four room homw from 1810. The oldest home in the park is the Maison Buller from 1803.
