L.M. Montgomery's Birthplace

L.M. Montgomery was born November 30, 1874 in a small white and green house overlooking New London Harbour on PEI.




The house is very well-maintained.  The interior is decorated with period Victorian furnishings.  There is a small bedroom decorated as it may have been when Montgomery was born there.



On display in the house is Montgomery's wedding dress.  It has been perfectly preserved and it's amazing to see how tiny it is!  Humans really have evolved to become larger and taller in a very short time.
