This is a list of locations that I have been able to find. If you know of more locations, please let me know!
I've never been to any of these places, so I'm unable to tell you what to expect. Remember, some of these places are privately owned. Don't trespass on their property!

L. M. Montgomery's last home was 210 Riverside Drive on the Humber River. I'm not sure what all is there or if it's open to visitors. :)
