Best known as the fictional home of Anne Shirley – the spunky red-haired heroine of L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables – this place once belonged to cousins of the author. Now protected, the site includes many of Montgomery’s beloved lanes and pathways and the old house, lovingly decorated, brings Anne’s world to life. People come from near and far in search of Anne, a stronger connection to a beloved story, and a chance to see the captivating landscapes that once inspired an author and still capture the imaginations of visitors today.
