Welcome to the Official Website of the Lucy Maud Montgomery Society of Ontario

LUCY MAUD MONTGOMERY wrote 11 of her 22 novels at home in rural Leaskdale, Ontario, north of Uxbridge. Her personal journals tell her story. Her poetry reflects her feelings. Here she wrote… and here she dreamed. The Leaskdale Manse was the first home the author could call her own. In 1911, L.M.
