As of May 17 2019, the new Green Gables Visitor Centre will be open, including the lobby area, washrooms and gift shop. The interpretive exhibits will be installed in the end of June. The accessible pathway and front door entrance to Green Gable House is now ready for use.
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 – where images from the blockbuster 1908 novel blend with the real life experiences of local author Lucy Maud Montgomery, who drew inspiration from the idyllic farmstead and its red woodland pathways.
