Anne of Green Gables on Prince Edward Island

Anne of Green Gables on Prince Edward Island

Located in the Gulf of St. Lawrence off Canada’s east coast, Prince Edward Island is the setting for Lucy Maud Montgomery’s popular 1908 children’s novel, Anne of Green Gables. See below for key spots where you can follow in the footsteps of the book’s beloved red-haired protagonist.

Green Gables Heritage Place

The perfectly preserved Green Gables House—the real-life inspiration for the fictional Cuthbert farm—is a literary landmark set within Prince Edward Island National Park, about 25 miles (40 kilometers) from the city of Charlottetown. Tour the interior of the house and follow the trails around the property, which feature famous locations from the books such as Lovers Lane, the Haunted Woods, and Balsam Hollow. In addition to walking paths, the grounds also encompass the Stanley Thompson–designed Green Gables Golf Course.

Montgomery’s Birthplace

Outside of Cavendish in the sleepy settlement of New London sits the modest clapboard cottage where Montgomery was born in 1874. Together with Green Gables Heritage Place, it forms the L.M. Montgomery’s Cavendish National Historic Site. Now serving as a museum, the cottage exhibits personal items associated with the author, including extracts from her scrapbooks and a replica of her wedding dress.

Avonlea

This tribute heritage village—named after the fictional village of Avonlea, which in turn was inspired by the real-life village of Cavendish—offers a glimpse into Anne’s world. As well as authentic historical buildings, including a 19th-century church and schoolhouse, it also has replica heritage buildings occupied by restaurants and gift shops.

Anne of Green Gables Museum

Built by Montgomery’s aunt and uncle in 1872, this idyllic farmhouse, known as Silver Bush, was a place Montgomery herself held dear, choosing the parlor as the setting for her wedding. Venture inside to view all kinds of Anne memorabilia, including rare editions of the books and personal photographs belonging to Montgomery. Carriage rides take passengers on tours around the surrounding farmland.
