Farmers' Bank of Rustico National Historic Site ( 1:19 min 2.9 MB )

TRANSCRIPT:

The Farmers' Bank of Rustico was designated as a National Historic Site of Canada in 1971 and it was at that time that the museum was founded.

It operated from 1971 to 1991, and it had to close in 1991, because the building was thought to have been unsafe and there were some signs of structural problems and at that time we brought in an engineering firm to take a look at the building structure and to examine it and, of course, we found that we had to close the building for the public.
