Avonlea Village

Avonlea Village is a theme park designed around the mythical village in Lucy Maude Montgomery's novel, Anne of Green Gables. It is a bit of a tourist trap, but it is well done. They have an outdoor theatre where they put on sketches from the story and the have a musical program that runs in the Fish Shed. Not all the buildings are open, and about have of what is open are shops inside houses.

 

To there credit, they have one building dedicated to the author, not only her books, but also her life in general with a specific on her photography. Until I had a chance to see this, I was not aware that she was a prolific, and relatively accomplished photographer. Especially considering the equipment available to her when she was active.
