Andrew Jackson Centre

Historic Site in Carrickfergus

The seventh US president's parents left Carrickfergus in the 18th century. His ancestral home was demolished in 1860, but a replica thatched cottage now houses this memorial 2km north of Carrickfergus Castle. Displays cover the Jackson family in Ulster, and Ulster's US connections.

Next door, the US Rangers Centre commemorates the first US Rangers, who trained during WWII in Carrickfergus before heading for Europe.
