A Georgian house, built by Capt. John Johnston, whose widow married H. M. Richardson of Rossfad; who, when he inherited the latter estate, and part of Rich Hill, handed Crocknacrieve over to his cousin, Nicholas Archdale, who added a wing, said to have been built with stone from the old Folliott castle at Ballinamallard.
