Before You Step Back in Time...
Though Le Village historique acadien is a created outdoor museum, it speaks to truths about the overall Acadian experience in Nova Scotia, and to the particular life and times of the Pubnicos in the early 1900s. Here are a couple of aspects to keep in mind during your visit.
A Bond with the Sea
The seaside setting to your right is more than beautiful; it's a watery highway from which this community has long derived much of its livelihood. Exploring, fishing, settling, shipbuilding, trading — the coast and its offshore resources led our ancestors to put down roots in this area. Much the same relationship keeps us here today. For despite all the changes across four centuries, the ocean and the inter-tidal zone remain at the economic heart of the Pubnico community. Nature provides the bounty we harvest and safeguard.
A Sustaining Faith
Wherever Acadians settled in post-Deportation Nova Scotia, the Roman Catholic Church was an institution of importance. Typically, the priests and religious sisters were forces for education, economic development, health and welfare, and community cohesiveness. The first church in West Pubnico was completed in 1815. It stood not far from where you are standing, just beyond the boundary of Le Village. It was replaced
in 1840 by a new church constructed in the area of the cemetery across the road from the entrance to Le Village. A third church, St. Peter's, was completed between 1890 and 1892 and is still standing a few kilometers from here. As you go into the houses in Le Village you will notice lots of evidence of the Roman Catholic faith in the form of religious imagery, crucifixes and rosaries.
Avant votre retour dans le passé...
Bien que le Village historique acadien soit un musée en plein air créé, il révèle des vérités de l'expérience globale des Acadiens en Nouvelle-Écosse et de la vie d'antan à Pubnico. Veuillez garder ces deux choses à l'esprit pendant votre visite.
Un lien avec la mer
La cadre du bord de la mer à votre droite est impressionnant, non seulement par sa beauté, mais également par sa valeur; c'est une voie d'eau de laquelle cette communauté a depuis longtemps tiré son gagne-pain. L'exploration, la pêche, l'établissement, la construction de bateaux et le commerce — le littoral et les ressources halieutiques ont encouragé nos ancêtres à s'enraciner dans cette région. Les mêmes raisons nous gardent ici aujourd'hui; parce que, en dépit de tous les changements à travers quatre siècles, la mer et la zone intertidale demeure au cœur économique de la communauté de Pubnico. La nature nous fournit cette abondance, que nous récoltons et protégeons.
Une
foi nourrissante

Partout où les Acadiens s'établirent durant les années suivant la déportation, l'église catholique romaine fut importante. Typiquement, les prêtres et les religieuses furent des forces en éducation, en développement économique, en santé et bien-être et en solidarité communautaire. La première église à Pubnico-Ouest fut complétée en 1815. Elle était non loin d'ici, un peu en dehors des limites du Village. Elle fut remplacée en 1840 par une nouvelle église érigée dans la région du cimetière qui se trouve de l'autre côté du chemin de l'entrée du Village. Une troisième, aujourd'hui l'église Saint-Pierre, fut complétée entre 1890 et 1892 et existe encore à quelques kilomètres d'ici. Lorsque vous visiterez les habitations du Village, vous remarquerez beaucoup d'indices de la foi catholique : des images religieuses, des crucifix et des chapelets.
