Andrew Jackson and US Rangers Centre

The Andrew Jackson Cottage highlights Carrickfergus' strong American and Ulster-Scots connections as well as telling the story of Andrew Jackson, the 7th president of the USA, whose parents emigrated to America from Carrickfergus in 1765. Located less than a mile from the town centre off the Larne Road, this single storey building has been restored to its original state. The interior has been decorated with a dresser, sponge wear crockery, iron pots and griddles. The cottage also has a collection of Ulster patchwork quilts.
