Old Town Lunenburg | Canada

Old Town Lunenburg is considered to be the best surviving example of a British colonial policy of creating new settlements by imposing a pre-designed "model town" plan on whatever tract of wilderness it was the King's pleasure to colonize.

The settlement was created in June 1753 as a home for 1,453 mostly German-speaking Protestant German, Swiss and French colonists.
Old Town Lunenburg is Unesco World Heritage site.
