Admin/Bio History:

On September 22, 1973, a group of interested citizens from West and East Pubnico got together to organize a historical society whose main objective would be the study of historical questions regarding the Acadians in general and more particularly those of Yarmouth County.

The name first given to the society was "La Société historique acadienne du comté de Yarmouth", which was to be used in this French form, the official name of the society.

On January 24, 1975, the society received the Charter from the Government of Nova Scotia, Registered and Incorporated under the #1195 (not for profit organization) to be used for tax exemption purposes.


1-    The name of the society is "La Société historique acadienne du comté de Yarmouth".
2-    The objectives of the Society are:

(a)    To study the history of the Acadian people, particularly those of Yarmouth County.
(b)    To establish an Acadian Historical Museum at West Pubnico and to maintain same after its            establishment.
(c)    To acquire by way of grant, gift, purchase, bequest, devise, or otherwise, real and personal            property and to use and apply such property to the realization of the objects of the society.
(d)    To by, own, hold, lease, mortgage, sell and convey such real personal property as may be            necessary or desirable in the carrying out of the objects of the Society.

Further information on Memorandum and Bylaws may be found in Désiré d'Eon fonds 1997.3-f2-B#50.

The founding members were as follows:

President                 Désiré d'Eon
Vice-President       Alfred B. d'Entremont
Secretary                 Rosie L. d'Entremont
Treasurer                 Bennie Amirault

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 RR0001.

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.
