Lower Bedeque Schoolhouse
950 Callbeck Street, Central Bedeque, C0B 1G0

The fact that L M Montgomery was a substitute teacher in this one-room schoolhouse from October 1897 to the spring of 1898 spurred its restoration in 1989 and its relocation to Central Bedeque in 2021 where it is operated as part of the Bedeque Area Historical Museum. Furnished as a nineteenth-century country school, there are displays on the history of education in the area, and on Montgomery’s time in Bedeque, when she fell in love with a young farmer named Herman Leard, with whose family she was boarding. On display are mementos connected with Herman.

Cavendish Post Office

Discover the fascinating connection between L.M. Montgomery and the post. A small exhibition allows visitors to follow the writer’s manuscripts through the postal system. Many objects from the collection of the Canadian Museum of History illustrate her work as assistant postmaster. Taking advantage of her job at the family’s post office, Montgomery discretely mailed the manuscript of her most famous novel, Anne of Green Gables, to publishers. That is how she managed to get it published in 1908.

Sullivan Films Anne of Green Gables Production Locations

  • Orby Head – on the Shore Road in the National Park, a few miles from Cavendish. The scene in which Anne and Diana are standing on a cliff overlooking the Gulf of St. Laurence was filmed here. A parking area is available.
  • Rustico Bay – a few kilometres east of Cavendish. Scenes were filmed along Highway 6 overlooking the bay, lighthouse, and fishing houses.
  • Dalvay-by-the-Sea– the hotel used to represent the “White Sands Hotel” in the Anne films as well as in the Road to Avonlea television series.
  • Sea Cow Head Lighthouse – within the Red Sands Shore touring route, several miles west of the Confederation Bridge (see Fernwood on Highway 119 on the official PEI provincial highway map).

Cavendish Destination Centre 

View the Tryon Cape Lighthouse from the telescope. This vista was one of L.M. Montgomery’s favourite views and still remains pristine, coastal farmland. Cape Tryon Lighthouse is believed to be the Four Winds Lighthouse that Montgomery wrote about in which of her books? Ask the Destination Centre Staff for a hint.

Hunter River Train Depot 

In Anne of Green Gables, the Hunter River Train Depot became Bright River Station, where Anne first met Matthew. When the old depot was decommissioned, it was moved to Marco Polo Land Campground and you can find it there. 

Dr. Kent G. Ellis Heritage Park / Confederation Trail

Hunter River once had a train station which may have inspired Bright River, the station depicted in the Anne of Green Gables novel. Trains no longer run on PEI, but the Confederation Trail, a hiking path which retraces the routes of the train tracks, passes through Hunter River. Hunter River is also home to the Harmony House Theatre where local musicians perform 10 months of the year.

Anne of Green Gables The Musical – The Confederation Centre of The Arts

See Prince Edward Island’s iconic redhead on stage this summer! This Canadian classic is a humorous, touching, and dynamic musical that will inspire your imagination, tickle your funny bone, and mesmerize you with its graceful and exhilarating singing and dancing.

This cherished family musical tells the poignant and funny story of a freckle-faced, red-haired orphan named Anne Shirley who arrives at the Bright River Railway Station full of hope for a new life. Her destination is the home of brother and sister Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert in Avonlea, Prince Edward Island. When she arrives at Green Gables, Anne is devastated when she discovers that the elderly couple is expecting a boy from the orphanage, and then ecstatic when they decide to keep her. With her fiery temper, love of melodrama and romance, and penchant for misadventure, she brings laughter, love, and more than a little consternation to the Cuthberts’ quiet lives. In return, Anne finds the happiness and the home she has longed for all her life.

Maurice Bernard Print Galleries

The six artworks featured on this website were created by Prince Edward Island artist Maurice Bernard. Working mainly in oils and chalk pastels, Bernard’s art captures the beauty and grace of the Island, the innocence of children and the warmth of families. His past solo exhibitions include A Visual Diary – inspired by a three-month bicycle trip across Canada; Acadian Life on Prince Edward Island – a depiction of Acadian culture and heritage; Rural Roots– works inspired by past rural life on PEI and Shorelines & Waterways that was inspired by his fascination of living on an island, with its myriad of bays, rivers and shoreline vistas, during all seasons of the year. A professional artist since 1982, Maurice is also a popular art teacher and has earned acclaim for his commissioned portraits which reflect his genuine interest in the life of his subjects. In the past decade he has acquired reputation as a sandcastle builder, hired by Parks Canada to work on beaches on the north shore of PEI. He lives and works in Summerside PEI where he teaches children’s art classes and paints in his studio at the Lefurgey Cultural Centre.

Prints of the six Bernard images illustrated on this website are available in various sizes at Ellen Creek Gallery in Charlottetown, The Studio Gallery in Victoria-by-the-Sea, Avonlea Village in Cavendish and Carr’s Oyster Bar gift shop in Stanley Bridge.
