Green Gables Heritage Place
When you mention PEI, for millions of people around the world, the first thing that comes to mind is Anne of Green Gables. If you want to really experience this province, a stop at the Green Gables Heritage House is a must-do. For fans of the story, this is the house where it all began, the house that inspired the setting for L.M. Montgomery’s novels. Walk through the rooms of the Victorian home, restored to the period of the late 1800s, and picture yourself as the red-headed girl. Experience farm life in the barn, granary and wood shed. Stroll the ‘Haunted Woods’ and ‘Balsam Hollow’ trails described in the book. And if you haven’t read the book, the Green Gables Heritage House still provides a unique look back at a period in time on this beautiful island.
