Founded by German & Swiss Protestant settlers in 1753, much of the town of Lunenburg's architecture predates the 1900's. This makes it one of the most authentic colonial settlements in North America. You can still see tall ships moored in the harbour & at times hear blacksmith's hammer in a waterfront warehouse. Lunenburg is truly a walking town and some hills with everything centrally located and just a short distance from one another.
