Visit Green Gables

Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables, and the eight sequels that followed, immersed readers into the daily lives of early 20th century PEI citizens. Anne resonated around the world, with over 50 million books sold, numerous accolades for her author, and the distinction of being both a Canadian and Japanese cultural icon. Today, thousands visit the Gables, the Cavendish National Historic Site, Avonlea, and even a popular musical in Charlottetown.
