Nicely done history museum. Very worthwhile video of Acadian life. Gift shop was a pleasure to shop in. The short stroll to the monument, gave time for reflection. A heart breaking tale, in the form of a poem.

Vanessa del Rio portrayed Evangeline in a silent move in 1929. She commissioned this statue of herself in the role which now sits behind the church. Worth finding and seeing.

We love St Martinville. Not only is a historic town, but also very quaint with shops and Evangeline/Acadian sights and stories. The church is beautiful, and highlights our Acadian heritage. The Evangeline Oak and park are so beautiful as well.

All English teachers should visit. Read or quote the poem there to feel historical and enjoy the beautiful walk along the Bayou Teche.
