Bringing the world of Anne of Green Gables into your own
Ingleside - PEI Museum
Welcome to "Ingleside" -- the L. M. Montgomery Heritage Museum in Park Corner, Prince Edward Island.
Originally the home of L. M. Montgomery's father and grandfather, this stately home is still owned by the Montgomery family and is open to visitors every summer. It was the inspiration for "Ingleside," Anne and Gilbert's home in the Anne books.
Many family heirlooms are on display including some items that L. M. Montgomery wrote into her books and stories: "Magog," the green-and-white spotted china dog and the Rosebud Tea Set from the Anne books, the Fruit Basket and the Townsend Grandfather Clock from "The Story Girl" and much more.
Take a step back in time and experience some of the daily life from the late 1800s with a specially-guided tour of the home. Then spend as much time as you like looking through the parlours, sitting room, and upstairs bedrooms.
"Ingleside" is located beside The Lake of Shining Waters in Park Corner (on Highway 20) about thirteen miles west of Cavendish. Nominal admission fee for ages 10 and up.
Park Corner is located just to the left of "Four Winds Harbour" [New London Harbour today] on the map above.
Directions fromCavendish: Drive west on Highway 6 (the highway makes a sharp right turn just before Stanley Bridge) about 7 miles to the intersection of Hwys 6 and 20 (at New London corner). Turn right onto Hwy 20 and drive about 6 miles (through Spring Brook and French River) to Park Corner. The LMM Heritage Museum is the large white house on the hill on the right side of the road -- if you get to The Lake of Shining Waters, you've gone a few yards too far!
[The map above is from The Anne of Green Gables Treasury - Special Commemorative Edition and is designed to help you visualize the location of "Anne" sites from the "Anne" books. Some sites are completely fictional, such as "Glen St. Mary," "Four Winds Point, and "Anne's House of Dreams;" others are real places but were given fictional names in the "Anne" books: "Avonlea" (Cavendish), "Bright River" (Hunter River), etc. An excellent road map is available from the PEI Board of Tourism.]
