Formed in 1972, the Lunenburg Heritage Society is a registered charity governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and membership. While having been formed to save Lunenburg’s unique architecture, 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. Learn more about us here.
To preserve and promote Lunenburg’s unique heritage and to tell the story of its cultural, social, and economic development.
WHAT WE DO:
The society owns, operates, and maintains the Knaut-Rhuland House Museum. Follow our progress on the conservation work on the Knaut-Rhuland House here. Work starts in July 2022.
SOURCES OF FUNDING:
As The Lunenburg Heritage Society is a registered charity, it is funded through individual donations, membership fees, fundraising events, government agencies, and corporate sponsors. We could not operate without the generous support of our patrons and volunteers. Our most recent donors to the Knaut-Rhuland House Renewal Campaign can be found here.

Your contributions of time and funds are especially important. All donations are tax deductible (in Canada) and can be made through our website, in person at the Knaut-Rhuland House, by mail or by eTransfer. Learn more how you can make a donation here.
Volunteers are needed throughout the year for single events or on an on-going basis: you may choose your level of involvement and all help is appreciated. New members are always welcome. Learn more about how you can support us here.
