After their exciting adventure crossing the LaHave River, Flat Chris, Flat Stella, Flat Luke and Ms Flat headed to Lunenburg. In 1995, "Old Town" Lunenburg was added to the UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) World Heritage List. It is the second urban community in Continental North America to be included on this list (the other is old Quebec City).

One of the streets in the middle of town has been nicknamed "Unesco Fresco" because of the very colourful buildings.

The Fishermen's Memorial is located on the waterfront. The monument is shaped as a compass rose, and comprises eight three-sided columns at each compass point. Inscribed on these black granite columns are the names of mariners, primarily fishermen from Lunenburg County, who lost their lives at sea from 1890 until the present.

The middle column is inscribed with these words: "Dedicated to the memory of those who have gone down to the sea in ships and who have never returned and as a tribute to those who continue to occupy their business in the great waters."
