    C. A. Nothnagle Log House
    Depending on your source, it is stated that it is "the oldest known structure in the United States dating back to the 1600s," and "early Finnish-Swedish settlers built North America's oldest log structure. Oldest surviving log house in the Western Hemisphere." The Official Gloucester County web site states: " This one-room cabin is believed to have been built by Benjamin Braman in the mid-1600's. Constructed of square-hewn logs with a low-beamed ceiling, it has a large corner fireplace in a rear corner. Some historians believe this type of log cabin construction was introduced in America by the Finns rather than the Swedes, since many of the 17th century settlers were Finnish." [The plaque at the house says built between
    1638-1643, but the National Historic Homes web site states: "Period of Significance: 1650-1699"]. This is a private residence, owned by Harry and Doris Rink.
