High Tea With Lucy Maud Montgomery

Welcome on-board to our first High Tea With Lucy Maud Montgomery. YDHR and the Lucy Maud Montgomery Society of Ontario are presenting an action-filled day starting with a 3-course High Tea on the train, followed by an afternoon tour of the manse where she lived with her children and husband, minister of the local Presbyterian Church. Interesting tidbit … after a 6 week honeymoon tour of the British Isles, Ewan Macdonald and Lucy Maud Montgomery arrived in Toronto on Sunday, September 24th,1911 and took the 5 o’clock train to Uxbridge…this would be the first of many trips by train to and from the Uxbridge Train Station during the 15 years that they lived in Leaskdale including Maud having her favourite cat Daffy shipped from PEI to Uxbridge. Upon arriving back in Uxbridge, everyone will de-board the train, jump into their cars, and proceed onto the manse located in the nearby hamlet of Leaskdale for their very own tour. Tours start at 1:45 and 2:00 and are approximately 1 hour; you will need to show your boarding pass for admittance. Have fun!
