Description: The finest surviving example of a planned British colonial settlement in North America, Lunenburg was established in 1753 based on a rectangular grid pattern designed in England; until this day the site retains its original layout and general appearance. By preserving the wooden architecture of the city’s houses over the centuries (some of which date from the 18th century), the inhabitants have managed to safeguard the city's identity. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
