'Anne of Green Gables' house, Cavendish, Prince Edward Island, Canada
'Anne of Green Gables' house, Cavendish, Prince Edward Island, Canada
From Wikipedia; Green Gables is the name of a circa-19th century farm in Cavendish, Prince Edward Island, Canada. It is one of the most notable literary landmarks in Canada. The Green Gables farm and its surroundings are the setting for the popular Anne of Green Gables novels by Lucy Maud Montgomery. The site is also known as Green Gables Heritage Centre. A national historic site, it lies within Prince Edward Island National Park. The Green Gables farm was owned by the Macneill family, who were cousins of author Lucy Maud Montgomery. The farm's name is derived from the rich dark green paint of the gables on the farmhouse. The main exterior walls of the farmhouse are painted white. Montgomery visited the farm as a young girl and based her best-selling Anne of Green Gables series of books on the Green Gables farm. She drew romantic inspiration from the house, as well as the surrounding area, including the "Haunted Woods", "Lovers Lane", and "Balsam Hollow." Upon Montgomery's death, her wake was conducted from the living room of the Green Gables farmhouse for several days prior to her funeral at the local Presbyterian church and burial in the nearby Cavendish Community Cemetery. The international acclaim of Montgomery's novels made Cavendish into a popular tourist destination in the province beginning in the early 20th century. This led to the establishment of Prince Edward Island National Park in the 1930s. The park's boundaries encompassed the Green Gables homestead and the building became the property of the Government of Canada. In keeping with the early 20th century philosophy of Canada's national parks being vehicles for tourism, as opposed to conservation, the farmland surrounding Green Gables house was developed into a golf course, designed by world-renowned architect Stanley Thompson. In addition to being located within park boundaries, the Green Gables farmhouse is designated a national historic site for its importance in literary history, and is one of the most-visited historic sites in the country. The farmhouse exterior has not changed remarkably over time, and its interior decor and artifacts depict the late Victorian Period in rural Prince Edward Island. Guided and self-guided tours may be taken of the house and surroundings with Parks Canada interpretive staff available throughout the site. Various rooms in the house have been named according to the Anne of Green Gables story.
