What we do
The Lunenburg Heritage Society was formed in 1972 as a non-profit society with the intent to preserve and promote Lunenburg’s unique heritage and to tell the story of its cultural, social and economic development.
The LHS now has many members who provide not only financial support but also give generously of their time and talents to both the Society’s ongoing work and to its special fundraising events. Major undertakings of the LHS include the purchase and maintenance of a late 18th-century residence in Old Town Lunenburg – the Knaut-Rhuland House – as well as the construction of the Heritage Bandstand, a replica of the Town’s 1889 original. The Knaut-Rhuland House serves as a museum portraying life in the early years of Lunenburg’s history while the Bandstand, located near Town Hall in the heart of Old Town, is the setting for many key community events.
