It now bears the name of "La Société historique acadienne de
Pubnico-Ouest" and was incorporated in 1984 with "Le Ministre de la
Consommation et des Corporations d'Ottawa", #1509268, Business number 10759 9714
It has been quite active since its foundation and in 1977 its members purchased a dwelling
house in the village, which they promptly transformed into a museum. Through local help
and donations, as well as through grants from the Federal and Provincial governments, the
task of renovating the place went along very well, so that as it now stands the museum
compares favourably with other museums of the same size. Artifacts have been coming from
different sources and visitors seem to be pleased with what has been done so far.
An annex was added to the museum in 1994, to accommodate the research center and an
exhibit room. The inauguration took place in 1995.
The documents were donated to the archives in 1997, by Jean Bernard d'Entremont, the
executor of will and nephew, of Désiré d'Eon.
