Sir Andrew Macphail Homestead

271 Macphail Park Road, Orwell, PE  C0A 2E0

Sir Andrew Macphail called the Island home, but his life embraced the world. A teacher before training as a doctor in Montreal and becoming the first Professor of the History of Medicine at McGill University. He founded a literary magazine, made friends with Stephen Leacock, Rudyard Kipling and a young John McCrae (In Flanders Fields). Blind in one eye, Macphail argued his way onto the battlefields of France and was knighted for his services to his country. Visit his beautifully restored Island home, where Lucy Maud Montgomery came to dinner, attend fascinating lectures about his life and times, and wander the trails and gardens on the 140-acre property.
