Anne of Green Gables Museum
L.M. Montgomery named this home Silver Bush, and used it as the setting for her novels, Pat of Silver Bush and Mistress Pat.
The Anne of Green Gables Museum at Silver Bush, Park Corner has a treasure around every corner. On this 110-acre property you will find a museum with beautiful flower gardens on the property, a gift shop with the finest licensed Anne of Green Gables products available, a view of the Lake of Shining Waters, Matthews Carriage Rides, a playground for the children and some of the most beautiful scenery on Prince Edward Island.
The Campbell home, that L.M. Montgomery called her wonder castle, was built in 1872 by her Uncle John and Aunt Annie Campbell. The first Campbell family settled here in 1776 and it is still in the Campbell family after over two hundred and thirty years. Come to know the olden gladness, beauty and welcome that filled L.M. Montgomery’s heart when she visited the Campbell’s.
See your own reflection in the enchanted bookcase, one of the more significant items described in the Anne of Green Gables series. Also on display is the author’s crazy patchwork quilt made up in a multitude of shapes, sizes, and colours as well as her own hand coloured and developed photographs. L.M. Montgomery chose to be married in front of the fireplace in the parlour of the Campbell homestead on July 5, 1911. The same organ and furnishings that were used at the time of L.M. Montgomery’s wedding are still used today when young couples from around the world come to the Campbell home to be married.
