A Hidden Gem

Bideford Parsonage Museum is a hidden gem and must-visit destination for LM Montgomery enthusiasts and history lovers. The historic residence of PEI’s most famed author, it has been carefully restored to accurately reflect life in a rural homestead during the late 19th century. Today, you’re invited to gaze through the same window as Montgomery and see island life as she did.

Located near the small village of Tyne Valley in Western PEI, the museum may be small and hidden away, but that’s always the case with gems. Get off the beaten path and gain a deeper understanding of the place and era that inspired Montgomery’s writings.
