This house museum is wonderful, not only for its connection to the writer of Anne of Green Gables, but as a place to visit in its own right. Lucy Maud Montgomery boarded here for a year in 1894-95 when she was 19 and teaching at Bideford School.
The whole parsonage building was rescued and renovated by local people and has been returned to how it was when it was the parsonage that LM Montgomery would have remembered. I kept expecting her to appear. The staff were most informative and provided very interesting tours to both floors. The furnishings, wall papers and artefacts in each room had obviously been chosen and placed with care. This is a place not to be missed, and the West Country Historical Society who own and operate it are to be congratulated on a fine Museum supported as it is by the local community.
