Welcome to the Town of Lunenburg on Nova Scotia's south shore (also known as the Bluenose Coast). Founded in 1753, Lunenburg was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. This designation helps to ensure that Lunenburg's unique architecture and civic design, described as being the best example of planned British colonial settlement in North America, will continue into the future.
Lunenburg has a long history with the sea and its waterfront still echoes the days of "Wooden Ships and Iron Men!". The famous fishing schooner Bluenose was built in Lunenburg and a replica, The Bluenose II has her home port in Lunenburg.
Lunenburg has many interesting attractions including the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic, Lunenburg Academy, Fishermen's Memorial, St. John's Anglican Church, Montbeliard Monument, and many historic buildings.
