BIRD's EYE VIEW
of LUNENBURG in 1879


This map was drawn in 1879 by A. Ruger. It is quite accurate with respect to agreement with the Ambrose F. Church & Co Map of perhaps 15 years earlier.

This map was copied from an original seen at the South Shore Genealogical Society. It is also published in "LUNENBURG - An Inventory of Historic Buildings with Photographs and Historical and Architectural Notes", 2nd Edition, 1984.

The Bird's Eye View Map of 1890 shows considerable development over the 11 intervening years.



The Churches are identified as follows:

  1. St John's Anglican
  2. Zion Lutheran
  3. Methodist
  4. Presbyterian
  5. Roman Catholic
