1908: Green Gables Cottage, A Canadian Literary Classic
When Canadian author Lucy Maude Montgomery first published Anne of Green Gables, most people hadn't even heard of Canada’s tiniest province, Prince Edward Island. The story touched young and old alike, and Montgomery put PEI on the map! Today, millions of people each year make the trip to PEI to "walk in Anne's shoes". In 2014, the Guinness Book of Records declared the musical the longest-running annual musical production. Theatres around the world continue to stage the musical.
