Heritage? It’s who we are.

The Lunenburg Heritage Society was formed in 1972 as a registered charity with a mission to save Lunenburg’s unique architecture. While continuing to advocate for historic building conservation, the Society has grown to preserve and promote the full diversity of Lunenburg’s cultural and natural heritage. From Mi'kmaw habitation to the Acadian and Foreign Protestant settlements through Confederation... we tell Lunenburg's story. Nova Scotia's heritage strategy provides the integrated vision and framework for this undertaking.

How can I support?

The Lunenburg Heritage Society is funded through government agencies, corporate sponsors, Society fund raising events, individual donations, museum admissions and membership fees. We could not operate without the generous support of our patrons and volunteers.

Your continuing contributions are especially important now as the Society undertakes restoration work on the Knaut-Rhuland House. Each donation helps and is an important source of matching funds for government grants. Make a donation today. All donations are tax deductable and receipts are promptly issued for each donation received.
