Lunenburg is a town in Essex County, Vermont, United States. The population was 1,302 at the 2010 census,[3] the most populous in Essex County. Lunenburg contains the villages of West Lunenburg, South Lunenburg, Mill Village (Northern Lunenburg) and Gilman, and is part of the Berlin, NH–VT Micropolitan Statistical Area.

History

Lunenburg was granted by Benning Wentworth, the royal governor of New Hampshire, on July 5, 1763 to David Page and 68 other people. It is widely believed that David Page named the town, which stems from one of the titles for Prince Karl Wilhelm Ferdinand of Brunswick-Lunenburg.[4][5] Lunenburg was the home of Vermont State Representative Adino Nye Bell. Lunenburg is also believed to have inspired the Robert Frost poem "The Mountain", which takes place in a town called Lunenburg.[6]

Geography

Lunenburg is in southern Essex County along the Connecticut River, the border between Vermont and New Hampshire. It is bordered to the west by the town of Concord, to the northwest by Victory, at its northernmost point by Granby, and to the northeast by Guildhall, all in Vermont. Across the Connecticut, to the east is the town of Lancaster, New Hampshire, and to the south is the town of Dalton, New Hampshire. U.S. Route 2 crosses through the center of Lunenburg, leading west to St. Johnsbury and east to Lancaster and Gorham, New Hampshire. The Mount Orne Covered Bridge is in the eastern part of town, crossing the Connecticut to South Lancaster, New Hampshire.

According to the United States Census Bureau, Lunenburg has a total area of 45.8 square miles (118.6 km2), of which 45.1 square miles (116.7 km2) is land and 0.69 square miles (1.8 km2), or 1.55%, is water.[3] Neal Pond, north of the town center, is the largest body of water. There are also four brooks - Neal Brook, Mink Brook, Catbow Brook, and Hudson Brook - all of which feed into the Connecticut River. There are also smaller creeks throughout the town. The highest point is 2,279-foot (695 m) Temple Mountain in the northern part of town.
