Prince Edward Island

Green Gables Heritage Place

Prince Edward Island is the setting of Anne of Green Gables and was home to its author, Lucy Maud Montgomery. Both are remembered well on the island. You can visit the various historic home sites of Montgomery, several of which are now museums related to the author and her books, including Green Gables Heritage Place. Away from the Anne/Montgomery tourist mecca of Cavendish, you can experience the very real beauty which inspired Montgomery’s pen and meet the real Kindred Spirits that make up the local community of PEI.
