Descendants of the famed Acadian resistance fighter Joseph "Beausoleil" Broussard had a family reunion Saturday at Vermilionville in Lafayette.

La Maison Broussard has been called the jewel of Vermilionville and was rededicated to Broussard's son, Amand. The six room plantation home offered visitors a glimpse of what life was like for Broussard who built a successful cattle ranch along the Bayou Teche. The public was invited to celebrate and have the opportunity to trace their ancestry with help from Acadian Museum researchers.

The family's association now meets annually, and the events feature guest speakers and other presentations for its members to learn more about Broussard or Acadian history.
