Green Gables Heritage Place Visitor Centre opens in PEI
August 29, 2019
On Thursday, August 29, the Green Gables Heritage Place Visitor Centre in Cavendish, Prince Edward Island, celebrates its grand opening. Dignitaries including Her Imperial Highness Princess Takamado of Japan will be in attendance for the event, which has a theme of Friendship and Connection. The centre was designed by Root Architecture, for a property that is become one of the most visited federal parks in Canada, and is especially popular with Japanese tourists. The book Anne of Green Gables is required reading in public schools in Japan. Nearly 10,000 Japanese tourists visit the Cavendish site each year, which features a reproduction of Green Gables, the house described in the novel.
