A GLIMPSE INTO OUR HISTORY

Our Roots

From the very beginning, our aim has always been to explore the enchanting world of L. M. Montgomery. The West Country Historical Society opened the doors of Bideford Parsonage Museum in order to educate and inspire visitors and our Curator, Shelly Campbell, has been along for the ride right from the beginning.  Over the years, our reputation has grown and we are now considered a must-see History Museum for all residents and visitors to Prince Edward Island.
