Arguably Canada’s most notable literary landmark, Green Gables is the setting for the beloved 1908 novel Anne of Green Gables, the global sensation about a young orphan living in an idyllic Prince Edward Island village. The original green-gabled farmhouse, which inspired author Lucy Maud Montgomery more than a century ago, has been carefully restored to reflect the period, right down to the furnishings in the rooms.

Notes from "Virtual road trip – Canada from coast to coast to coast"

A straw hat, red-haired braids and a pinafore define Canada’s most loved fictional character, Anne of Green Gables. Meet the head-strong orphan and re-live her youthful escapades and mishaps within the memory-filled rooms of her home – Green Gables.

What to do?

Explore the new visitor center and it’s exhibit hall while reliving Anne’s escapades and misadventures with guided tours, interpretive trails and a geocaching course.
