Solomon House c.1775
One of Lunenburg's Most Historic Homes
Built by Heinrich Koch

Heinrich Koch was nineteen when he arrived
at Lunenburg with the first settlers in 1753.

The next year, with his father Anton, he set
up the town's first saw-mill. He soon
amassed a small fortune providing timber
to build the town, and he built this house,
one of the town's oldest homes, which
remains intact after more than two centuries.

Heinrich died in 1813, "an old and respectable
inhabitant of this township", aged 79.
