The Farmer’s Home on Railway Street is indicated on the 1833 Ordnance Survey map, the first detailed map of Strabane. However it is likely that the building we see today was remodelled in the 1860’s. The giveaway is the single pane sash windows on the upper floors made possible because of advances in glass technology mid-century. The influence of Georgian simplicity and proportion continues however. The building is of a type once very common but now increasingly rare.
