Town of Lunenburg's Heritage Recognition Awards

Nominations Open for the Town of Lunenburg’s Heritage Recognition Awards

February 6, 2018 - The Town of Lunenburg is now accepting nominations for the annual Heritage Awards - Certificates of Recognition for outstanding restoration and/or rehabilitation work and including well-designed infill developments that contribute positively to the streetscape in which they are located. The Heritage Recognition Awards Program applies to all works throughout the Town of Lunenburg whether it is a small or large development project.


“Our architectural built heritage is very important to this Town. The remarkable level of conservation we had achieved in the past helped to secure the UNESCO designation for “Old Town Lunenburg” as a World Heritage Site in 1995. We cherish our international reputation as a shining example of heritage preservation and this awards program will help to ensure respect and appreciation of built heritage is fostered and celebrated here. We look forward to recognizing property owners for their work in rehabilitation, restoration and new construction befitting Lunenburg,” said Mayor Bailey.

“We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting nominations for the 2017/18 awards”, added Deputy Mayor, Peter Mosher, and Chair of the Heritage Advisory Committee, “we encourage all citizens to nominate properties you feel deserves this recognition, and we also encourage property owners to nominate their own property.”

“There are many examples of restorations and new buildings that blend well into our built heritage,” Mayor Bailey stated, “and that’s the kind of effort we wish to recognize.”

The deadline for nominations is March 5th, 2018.

Nominations should include photos (before and after if available). For more information, please contact:
