Lunenburg, Vermont

Lunenburg was settled before 1790.

The Lunenburg Aqueduct Company was formed as a partnership on September 30, 1851 and built a system that served about 22 families in 1925.

After several complaints from customers in 1950, the Vermont Public Service Commission ordered the company to repair its system, but in early 1951 ordered the company to sell the system to Lunenburg Fire District Number 1.

Water is supplied by Lunenburg Fire District #1.
