Lying in the dock, waiting to take you to your new homeland on the American Frontier is a replica of an early 1800s emigrant sailing ship. It has been modelled on the Brig Union which carried Ulster families, including members of the Mellon family to Baltimore in 1816. 

The dockside buildings are original. The Merchant’s office is from Great George’s Street in Belfast while a 1700s house from Bridge Street in Derry represents the type of boarding house available before setting sail for the east coast of North America.
