‘In touch with our modern civilization’: Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, in the Nineteenth and Twenty-first Centuries

This presentation will explore the Victorian and Edwardian architecture of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, as well as the importance and the challenges of keeping that architecture viable in the present day.

Although the town’s layout is unchanged since its founding in 1753, much of its distinct architectural character dates from its period of greatest prosperity – the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Peter Coffman is an Associate Professor in Carleton University’s History & Theory of Architecture programme. Hilary Grant is Senior Planner and Heritage Officer for the Town of Lunenburg.
