Lunenburgers continued to speak their own German dialect until the 20th century, and remnants of it can still be heard in the local accent and expressions.

Many of the German settlers of the 1750s stayed in Halifax and contributed greatly to the city’s development. The "Little Dutch Church" built in the 1750’s still stands in their memory.
