Old Wood in North America

By Linda Tancs

Located along Swedesboro Road in Gibbstown, New Jersey, the Nothnagle cabin is one of the oldest log cabins in the United States and the oldest standing wooden structure in North America. All but one of the cabin’s original logs are intact. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976, it is believed to have been built in the 1600s by Finnish settlers. Privately owned, it is open for scheduled tours with the owners, Harry and Doris Rink.  They reside in a newer part of the structure added in the 1900s.
