Lucy Maud Montgomery wrote 11 of her 22 novels at home in rural Leaskdale, Ontario, north of Uxbridge. Her personal journals tell her story. Her poetry reflects her feelings. Here she wrote… and here she dreamed.

The Leaskdale Manse was the first home the author could call her own. In 1911, L.M. Montgomery moved to Leaskdale, a prosperous farming community, soon after marrying Ewan Macdonald. He was a Prince Edward Islander who had become the community’s Presbyterian minister one year earlier. Montgomery lived at the Manse for 15 years and raised 2 sons, Chester and Stuart.
