The Farmers’ Bank of Rustico, a National Historic Site, operated from 1864 to 1894 as the first people’s bank in Canada. Now a museum, an exhibition describes the settlement of the community by the Acadians, and the establishment of the bank by Father Georges-Antoine Belcourt and the Acadians of Rustic; the Farmers’ Bank also is the centre for a Genealogical Centre of Rustico Acadian families. Next door, The Doucet House (c. 1722), an Acadian log house offers interpretive programs.
