This Is The Oldest Place You Can Possibly Go In New Jersey And Its History Will Fascinate You

The C.A. Nothnagle Log House located in Gibbstown, New Jersey dates back to 1638 and is believed to be the oldest surviving log cabin in the United States. Though the current owners occasionally accept guests, the structure is on private property. You won’t find regular tours and last I heard, it was up for sale. I’d like to see it purchased by an organization that would preserve it and open it to the public, but until that happens, we have another old house that’s absolutely worth a visit.

The Seabrook Wilson House can be found at 719 Port Monmouth Road, Port Monmouth. If you’re a history buff who loves the shore, you may also want to check out the oldest lighthouse in America.
