Moistown was once a large and important house in the village of Broadwoodkelly. Now only ruins remain in the grounds of Pattiland Farm.

This illustrated map done in 1840 shows the house, labelled Morstown, as it was then. It shows only half the original house was still standing (if it is an accurate representaion).
