Milford House Museum

 

Dressing Room (24)

This dressing room connects two bedrooms. Like the bedrooms it connects to, the room is badly vandalized.

The central window is false (there are three windows on the exterior bay and only two inside). The room was called Spider dormitory and had two beds in it during the time of the Manor House School. It was named so because the dormitory next to it was called Robert the Bruce and Robert the Bruce caught the spider!

Please note Milford House and its parkland are in private ownership. They are not owned by Milford Buildings Preservation Trust.Tthere is no public access to the property which is currently one of the top twelve listed buildings at most serious risk in Northern Ireland
