Join Victoria Millar, Senior Curator of History, at the Old Rectory to learn about the building's distinguishing features and discover what life was like for those who lived in it in the early 1900s.

Homes in Focus is a series of intimate talks in the Ulster Folk Museum’s beautiful buildings, where we’ll be diving deep into the lives of those who lived in them and the history of these unique homes.

 For our autumn iteration of 'Homes in Focus', we’ll be gathering in the Old Rectory which opened at the museum in 1973. Originally situated about one mile east of Toomebridge in County Antrim, the house was occupied by several generations of the McCullagh family, starting with the Reverend Robert McCullagh, from whom the house gets its moniker.
