The Historic Acadian Village of Nova Scotia, located at 91 Old Church Road in Lower West Pubnico, is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. The Village is a live museum that offers a glimpse into life in the early 1900’s. From early June to the end of September, it is open daily from 9 am to 5 pm.
