Following the 1755 exile from Nova Scotia Acadians & descendants received Spanish land grants and settled the area. Among those arriving in 1785 was Jacques Molaison, who began a business. A settlement grew around his land; the name Brusly Landing evolved as steamboats stopped to pick up locally grown cotton. Today residents and descendants of early settlers call Brusly home.
