Green Gables Heritage Place

Activities

 

Tour the Site

Begin in the Visitor Centre, where an audio-visual presentation introduces the site. An exhibit highlights the life and works of L.M. Montgomery, Green Gables and PEI National Park. Next, explore interpretive displays in the barn or view an award-winning biographical film in the L.M. Montgomery theatre. In Green Gables House, guides are available to answer your questions as you view the restored rooms - complete with artifacts authentic to the period.

Explore the Trails

Near the house itself are two trails: the Haunted Wood Trail and the Balsam Hollow Trail, which begins as Lover's Lane. Interpretive signage highlighting the inspirational sources for Montgomery's writing is located along the trails. *Please see Balsam Hollow Trail improvements for information on 2014 access.*
