Road to Avonlea was a famed Canadian tv series that ran for 7 seasons and 91 episodes in the 1990's.
Construction on the set started in the summer of 1989, on the former Robert Nesbitt farm on the 6th Concession of Uxbridge, Ontario near Coppin's Corners. The Nesbitt house and barn on the property became the King farm buildings in the series. All the other buildings were shells.
On set the roads were painted red to look like the red soil of Prince Edward Island. Actual scenes from P.E.I. were used where required. When the final season had been filmed, the set was demolished except for the original buildings.
The set was on land which still belongs to a farming family. They live on the property and their house and barn, which were used to depict the King house and barn, are still standing. The land is private, but you can see the house and barn from the road.
The Pinegrove Church used on the show is east of the Avonlea site on Concession 7.
Uxbridge-Scott Museum has exhibits on Road to Avonlea as well as a model of the Road to Avonlea set.
The lighthouse in Road to Avonlea is one of the most recognizable landmarks featured in the show. It is the home of Gus Pike and the area around which the King children are often getting into mischief. The crew shot scenes from low angles to give the illusion that there was a cliff nearby and if viewers ever see the real cast with the sea behind them, it means that green screen technology was used for that shot. A studio set was used for its interior scenes.
Directions- east of Coppins Corners. The church is on Conc. 7 north of the hwy.
