Cavendish Letterbox is located in on route 6 in Cavendish, Prince Edward Island. Lucy Maud Montgomery, the author of Anne of Green Gables and 22 other books, is absolutely the star of this town. This stamp was carved to look like Lucy Maud Montgomery's birthplace in nearby New London. You can decide for yourself how successful we were in that when you see it:)

We placed the box inside the Cavendish Post Office Museum, which shares a building with the post office and is right next door to the Union Church. It's a small enough town that you shouldn't have trouble finding it. The post office is located fairly close to her childhood homesite. The box is in the ice boat peril room directly above passenger ticket #346

The post office is open seasonally ONLY
m-f 9am to 5pm
sat 9am to 1pm
sun 1pm to 5pm

The season runs from Victoria Day weekend through Canadian Thanksgiving
