This re-created 18th-century dwelling is built in the style of cottages once lived in by Scotch-Irish settlers—including the ancestors of Andrew Jackson (1767–1845), the seventh President of the United States and the first President of Irish extraction. The cottage is decorated as it would have looked in the 1750s; also here is an exhibition devoted to the life of Jackson. Although it’s a faithful reproduction, the house isn’t the actual home of the Jacksons—that was demolished in the 19th century. Next door is a very small museum devoted to the U.S. Rangers, who were stationed in Carrickfergus during World War II.
