Lunenburg Court House, the county seat since 1782, is a bucolic country town that seems lodged in the nineteenth century. The town was incorporated in 1816 and named Lewiston in honor of Captain Lewis L. Taylor, who died in the War of 1812. The name did not stick and the town continued to be called Lunenburg Court House.
