Green Gables House is a place where myth and reality meet. At the turn of the century, a young Canadian writer named Lucy Maud Montgomery wrote a book that put P.E.I. on the map. Anne, the feisty little orphan girl that Lucy created has delighted readers all over the world. Each year, thousands of visitors make a pilgrimage to Green Gables in search of simpler times and old-fashioned values. They come to see the land that Anne so loved, but they also discover another dimension to the land of Green Gables - the French. Since the first settlers cleared land on P.E.I., the French and the English have lived apart, separated by language and culture. The legacy of the land of Green Gables lives on, for the French through their music and for the English through their literature.
