While there are quite a few old buildings in the United States, such as the Cathedral of San Juan Bautista, which dates all the way back to 1521 and the San Jose Church (1532),it’s much more rare to find houses that date back for centuries. However, when you start to look into the oldest houses in the United States, you find everything from a stately Georgian-style mansion built in the dense woods of Kentucky to a quintessential log cabin situated along a creek in Pennsylvania.

The following offers a look at the 20 oldest homes in the United States, starting with the newest and working its way up to the oldest. Be aware that only houses are included on this list, so there are buildings, taverns, churches, etc. in the US that are older.
