Lunenburg is a small town on the South Shore of Nova Scotia, Canada on the Atlantic coast. Its population is about 2,500. Lunenburg was founded in 1753. Lunenburg was named in honor of the King of Great Britain and Ireland, George II, who was also the Duke of Brunswick-Lunenburg. At one time an essential seaport and shipbuilding center, the town is now home to several small businesses, high-tech industries and trade plants including High Liner Foods, which was at one point the chief fish plant in Canada. This plant now handles little more than manufacturing and nearly all fishing is done offshore. The original inhabitants of Lunenburg came during the same wave of immigration that produced the Pennsylvania Dutch. Many of the original families and descendants still reside and influence the development of the town today.
