From its humble beginnings, Lunenburg grew and prospered. In the 19th century, sailing ships built there were world-famous for their sturdiness and speed. It had a large fishing fleet and fish-processing plants. At one time, Lunenburg claimed more millionaires per capita than any other town in North America. The beauty and the historical importance of the old part of the town contributed to it becoming a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995.
