The Oldest Surviving Log Cabin
For the last 350 years, this structure stood still as the world changed around it. The country’s oldest surviving dovetail-constructed log cabin, a relic of the 1600s, is looking for a new owner. In the 1960s, a man named Harry Rink acquired the property from relatives. He devoted his life to the maintenance of the cabin and vowed to live there until the day he died, which he did. As the lone surviving homeowner, Doris Rink continues to host free tours and teach guests about the construction and artifacts that enrich the cabin’s history.
