B&B within walking distance of Lunenburg's
"Our house was built in 1887 for Captain William Howard Hebb (1863-1947) of Lunenburg," says Bob. See photo and partial newspaper clipping below. "For 25 years Captain Hebb commanded Brigs and three-masted schooners to many ports of the world, having the reputation of being one of the leading deep sea captains of his day." Lunenburg, founded in 1753, is a charming small town with a remarkable history of sailing ships and iron men. Bluenose and Bluenose II were both built in Lunenburg. The solid boatbuilding background expresses itself in the architecture - residences, churches and a National Heritage Site, the Lunenburg Academy.
