The Lunenburg Academy was built in 1895 and still used as a school until 2012.
It is also a National Historic Site.
Although tourism is now the main business in Lunenburg, it used to be shipbuilding, with its most famous, the Bluenose, having been built here in 1921 and the Bluenose II in 1963 and the Bounty, a reconstruction of HMS Bounty in 1961.
this 1982 stamp of the 1929 Bluenose stamp shows mostly the sails, but there is lots of wood underneath.
