Though Anne Shirley was born in Nova Scotia, her birthplace is based on L. M. Montgomery’s birthplace in Clifton (now New London), Prince Edward Island. L. M. Montgomery’s Birthplace is located on the main intersection of New London. It is now a museum which houses period furnishings, a replica of L. M. Montgomery’s wedding dress, and selected exhibits of her scrapbooks filled with her short stories and personal memorabilia.

"I shall leave the dogs where they are, if you will promise to be very careful of them," she said. "Their names are Gog and Magog. Gog looks to the right and Magog to the left. And there's just one thing more. You don't object, I hope, to this house being called Patty's Place?" ~ Gog & Magog

They went in by the entrance gates, past the simple, massive, stone arch surmounted by the great lion of England.  "'And on Inkerman yet the wild bramble is gory,  And those bleak heights henceforth shall be famous in story,'"  quoted Anne, looking at it with a thrill. ~ To the memory of Nova Scotian soldiers who fell in the Crimean War Anne Of The Island, Crimean War, Story Quotes, Bramble, Entrance Gates, Soldiers, Big Ben, Past, Nova

"We'd better hurry over to that little pavillion on the point," suggested the unknown. "We can wait there until this shower is over. It is not likely to rain so heavily very long." The words were very commonplace, but oh, the tone! And the smile which accompanied them! Anne felt her heart beating strangely. Together they scurried to the pavilion and sat breathlessly down under its friendly roof. Anne laughingly held up her false umbrella. ~ Anne met Royal Gardner Anne Of The Island, In A Heartbeat, Pavilion, Beats, Gazebo, Rain, Outdoor Structures, Smile, Shower

"It's almost exactly as I've pictured it," she said. "There is no honeysuckle over the windows, but there is a lilac tree by the gate, and—yes, there are the muslin curtains in the windows. How glad I am it is still painted yellow. Muslin Curtains, Anne Of The Island, Lilac Tree, Craftsman House Plans, Southern Style, Square Feet, Flooring, How To Plan, House Styles

Over the arched gateway of Patty's Place dangled a little, modest sign. It said "To Let, Furnished. Inquire Within." "Priscilla," said Anne, in a whisper, "do you suppose it's possible that we could rent Patty's Place?" "No, I don't," averred Priscilla. "It would be too good to be true. Fairy tales don't happen nowadays. I won't hope, Anne. The disappointment would be too awful to bear. They're sure to want more for it than we can afford. Remember, it's on Spofford Avenue." ~ Patty's Place Anne Of The Island, Disappointment, Whisper, Fairy Tales, Let It Be, Bear, Sign, Shit Happens, Places

"I'm going across to Old St. John's after lunch," said Anne. "I don't know that a graveyard is a very good place to go to get cheered up, but it seems the only get-at-able place where there are trees, and trees I must have. I'll sit on one of those old slabs and shut my eyes and imagine I'm in the Avonlea woods." ~ Old St. John's Cemetery Anne Of The Island, Cheer Up, St John's, Cemetery, Woods, Places To Go, Sidewalk, Trees, Lunch
