I notice the sign, "Le Musée à Maurice," a few days ago while going to the post office. I was very happy to see that the old Villien Bros building will be brought back to life.
This building used to be on Church Street behind the Villien store which had been the Maurice Flea Market for many years. The large store was torn down but this one here was moved onto Chief H. Fred Ave, across the street from the cemetery.
I haven't seen any activity around the building yet, but this morning, I was looking at the events schedule for the Grand Réveil Acadien, which starts today in the New Orleans area, and saw that they will have beignets and coffee next Friday morning here at the Musée including a beignets making demonstration. It starts at 8am October 14th. Hope to see some of you there. I know I will be there!
