The nation’s oldest surviving log cabin is now available for purchase

The nation’s oldest surviving log cabin is now available for purchase.
 
According to a Realtor.com report, the Nothnagle Log Home in Gibbstown, N.J., is on the market for $2.9 million. The property includes a 352-square-foot log cabin built in 1638 and listed on listed on the National Register of Historic Sites.
 
The log cabin is attached to an 18th-century two-story, three-bedroom, one-bath residential property that has been the home to Harry and Doris Rink since the 1970s. The Rinks have offered free tours of the log cabin by appointment and they expressed hope that the new owners will continue that tradition—the couple previously rejected offers to turn the log cabin into a tea shop.
 
"We just hope someone will be interested in having us as overseers so we can feed them the history," said Doris Rink. "Few people know pre-Revolutionary War history."
 
The 1.3-acre property also includes redwood trees, a gazebo, shed, machine shop, and four-car garage. The Rinks have also expressed their wish to create a life estate where they can continue to reside at the site after the purchase and until the end of the lives.
