Lurgan Conservation Area

Location: Co. Armagh
Designation date: 15 June 2004


Lurgan Conservation AreaThe town of Lurgan owes its origins to the early 17th Century when the Brownlow family began development there.
By 1622 the village consisted of some 40 properties, but these were largely destroyed through the insurrections and unrest of the later 17th century.
The rebuilding of the town that took place during the 18th century and development since, particularly in the late 19th and early 20th century, reflects the origins of the town's historic layout and this remains evident in the street pattern today.
