Arthur Cottage is the ancestral home of Chester Alan Arthur, the 21st President of the USA.

Arthur Cottage, 4 miles from Ballymena town, is situated in the heart of County Antrim. Only a short walk from the village of Cullybackey, it is the ancestral home of Chester Alan Arthur, the 21st President of the United States of America.

Enter this carefully restored cottage and be transported to a bygone era and see how the Arthur family lived in the late 18th Century. Follow the story of the Arthur family and trace the link from a rural village in Northern Ireland to the American Presidency.

Arthur Cottage provides an educational experience for all ages. Baking demonstrations over the open turf fire by ladies dressed in period costume take place and visitors can come along on selected days and enjoy the soda bread and pancakes.
