The Exchange and Assembly Rooms
The Exchange and Assembly Rooms
The Exchange and Assembly Rooms building dates from 1769 but owes its present appearance to changes by Charles Lanyon in 1845.

The building is most famous for hosting the Harp festival of July 1792 and, in the aftermath of the 1798 rebellion, the Assembly Rooms were pressed into service as courtrooms for the trial of rebel leader Henry Joy McCracken of the Antrim United Irishmen, who was subsequently hanged in public exhibition in the High Street.
