|With Liam Corry, Assistant Curator of Agriculture, Ulster-American Folk Park, at the Uriah Hupp log house.
A log house from Greene County, Pennsylvania is a prized building in the Ulster-American Folk Park in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. It was built in Clarksville, Greene County, in the 1800s for the Uriah Hupp family. In 1985, it was dismantled and shipped to Ireland under the supervision of antiques expert Peter Chillingworth of Scenery Hill, PA. There it was re-built in the “New World” section of the open-air museum that tells the story of Irish emigration on both sides of the Atlantic.
