Welcome to the Campbell House
Hello I’m Robert Campbell, I’m 18 years of age and it’s the year 1822. This is my home, in the townland of Aughalane, near the Plumb Bridge about 12 miles from Strabane, County Tyrone in Ireland.
In a few weeks time I’m leaving for America – how am I going to tell my dear mother? They’re all away to the market today, and I’m just having a quiet look around the house, for it might be years before I see it again. Come with me and I’ll tell you something about it.
