Lucy Maud Montgomery museum is for sale

If you’re looking to invest in some CanLit history, the Lucy Maud Montgomery Heritage Museum in Park Corner, Prince Edward Island, is for sale.

According to CBC.ca, the museum’s owner, 72-year-old Robert Montgomery, a descendant of the beloved Green Gables author, is losing money on the property.

The 134-year-old house, which inspired Lucy Maud Montgomery’s fictional Ingleside, has been Robert’s home since he was 22. He expressed hope that the federal or provincial government would consider purchasing the museum.
