Green Gables

Anne (with an e) Shirley and her bosom friend Diana invite you to explore the Green Gables house from the beloved Anne of Green Gables series by Lucy Maud Montgomery.  This model features elements taken from both the novel, 1985 TV series and from Green Gables Heritage Place on Prince Edward Island.  Relive your favorite scenes from the raspberry cordial incident to the escaped cow, the mouse in the sauce, the cutting of the green hair and of course the iconic carriage arrival of Anne to her new home and family.
