Tours

The Leaskdale Manse is wheelchair accessible on the first floor only. The Historic Leaskdale Church, home to our luncheon teas and Gift Shop, is now wheelchair accessible on both floors thanks to the installation of our new elevator in the Summer of 2018.

 

Our site is open weekends only in the months of May.

During the Summer from June to the 1st weekend in September, an employee is on site to conduct tours daily, from 10 am to 4 pm.

Discover Maud in the Garden

After two years of hard work, our statue of Maud is installed in the garden, unveiled on June 20, 2015 by The Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario.  A beautiful work of art by local artist, Wynn Walters, she is seated in the garden looking across the fields she loved.  Visit Maud in our church garden, sit and take your picture with her and finish with a tour of the home where she lived and wrote…

We are proud to bring Maud to the garden with the help of The Ontario Trillium Foundation.

 

Discover L. M. Montgomery’s Life in Leaskdale

 

Take a journey back in time to The Leaskdale Manse and Historic Leaskdale Church.  Discover, nestled in our scenic garden, the only full-size bronze statue of Canada’s beloved author. Gain insight into Maud’s life with a historic video before walking in her footsteps on a guided tour through the church where her husband preached and the lovingly restored manse where she lived and wrote. After a photo-op in the garden beside the statue, enjoy tea and scones in our interpretive centre before perusing the gift shop for a book or two.
