You Can Now Live In The Oldest Log Cabin In The United States That Was Built In 1638

We are where nostalgia lives

Have you ever wanted to live in a house with a lot of history and character? If you watch a lot of HGTV, you know that description of homes can often mean that it is also a lot of work. But for some people, a project is not a big deal as long as it means the home is rich with character and lived experience.

If that sounds like your dream home, you might just want to look at this old log cabin. We’re talking really old. It was built in 1638, meaning it is currently 680 years old! You can’t find a home with more history than that, now can you?

Christina Huang / Weichert Realtors

The home was put on the market in 2017 by Harry and Doris Rink. When they bought Nothnagle Log House located in Greenwich Township, New Jersey, they knew they’d found a home to stay in for a while. However, now they are looking to sell the house, but they have no plans to leave. They’d like to continue living there after the sale to host tours in the home. They’d like the new owner of the log cabin to maintain the house as the property owner.

Christina Huang / Weichert Realtors

The cabin was expanded in 1730 and then again in 1900. It actually sits just a mile away from the Revolutionary War’s Fort Billings. The oldest part of the home was built by Finnish settlers in the New Sweden colony somewhere between 1638 and 1643. Pieces of Scandinavian ironware from the 1590s can still be seen around the fireplace.

Christina Huang / Weichert Realtors

The price tag for this piece of American history does not come cheap. It is currently listed at $2,900,000 and has been sitting at that price point since June 2017. If you think that is too expensive, this home is full of artifacts from the 17th and 18th century, so the realtor feels the price of the home is actually cheaper than what it is worth.

“A lot of things that were buried many years ago have wound up turning up in the yard,” Doris said. Apparently, Harry will find artifacts while riding his tractor around the property. “Every single item in the cabin is an artifact or antique. There is nothing else out there like this place.”

Christina Huang / Weichert Realtors

You can read the full listing description below:

Once in a lifetime opportunity! Nothnagle Log Home, built between 1 . On the National Register of Historic Sites through the US Department of the Interior. This is the oldest log cabin in the United States, and the oldest of it’s type in the Western Hemisphere. C.A. Nothnagle Log House is attached to the home of Doris and Harry Rink, who have owned the home since 1940.

Christina Huang / Weichert Realtors

Incredible artifacts and various furnishings are also included in the sale of this museum-like property. 100 ft redwood trees, a gazebo, shed, machine shop and a 4 car garage are also offered in this 1.3 acre home. The Rinks affection and devotion to their residence, in addition to their pride and joy of it’s heritage, has been their motivation in welcoming many thousands of visitors through their doors.

Christina Huang / Weichert Realtors

These have included Ambassadors, Consulate Generals, Congressmen, Governors, Authors, Professors, Archaeologists and Historians in addition to those visiting for their thirst for knowledge. The historic integrity of the home must be preserved, and the owners want it to remain open to guided tours and visitors to continue sharing its wealth of history for years to come. A life estate is required where the Rinks will continue their tours and to care for their beloved residence.

Christina Huang / Weichert Realtors

If this is too much money for you to spend, you can still get your fill of cabins. You can pretend you’re a pioneer and stay overnight in covered wagon cabins near Yosemite.

An Amazing Life-Sized Replica Of Noah’s Ark Will Set Sail To Israel

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

The man who built a 390-foot replica of Noah’s Ark plans to sail the ark to Israel. However, as amazing as the replica is, he did not build it with a motor. He will need to rent tugboats to actually sail it. The Dutch carpenter, Johan Huibers, reportedly built the ark to show people that God exists.

He took instructions for the ark based on measurements given in the Bible, more specifically Genesis 6:15. Huibers already spent over $5 million to construct the ark and it would cost over $1 million more to rent tugboats so the ark can set sail. So, why Israel? Huibers said that the ark is a copy of God’s ship, so it would only make sense to take it to God’s land.

More About This Amazing Ark

The Dutch carpenter’s vessel has been constructed in accordance with specifications laid out in the Hebrew Bible, using the measurements given in Genesis 6:15. Currently, the huge ark has been an international tourist attraction since 2012. The ark took him four years to complete and even includes life-size replicas of animals inside.

Huibers, who made a fortune constructing storage spaces, said he got the idea to build a replica of Noah’s ark after reading the story to his children. He initially built one that was only about half the size as the one in the Bible. So, he sold that one and built a life-size replica.

The ark is made from American cedar and Swedish pine and has a steel frame. While Huibers is a builder, he is not a professional boatmaker so he admits a lot of stuff remains crooked. The ark has five floors and can hold 5,000 people at once.

Where Is It Located?

This ark is located in the Netherlands but is currently closed because of disagreements between Huibers and town officials. The town said that they are concerned about public safety, but Huibers says that all the safety codes are up to date. However, I guess it wouldn’t matter if he plans to try to set sail with it soon.

There is another life-size replica of Noah’s Ark in the United States. While the one in the Netherlands opened in 2012, the one in Kentucky opened in 2016. It also contains animal and human replicas inside and history about Noah’s Ark.

What do you think about people building life-size Noah’s Ark replicas? Do you think they should be open for public viewing or do you love the idea they could actually set sail?

Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer Is The Best Christmas Movie, According To A New Poll

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

Now that the Christmas season is officially here, it is time to watch classic Christmas movies. New movies are nice and all, but the classics are considered timeless for a reason. Every year, we need to watch Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, The Year Without a Santa Claus, and more.

Rankin/Bass Productions gave us Christmas staples like The Little Drummer Boy, Frosty the Snowman, and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Every year, you can turn on your TV in December and find one of these movies playing. People each have their favorite pick out of the classic Christmas movies and each movie evokes a certain sense of nostalgia every time you watch it.

CBS

However, recently some people suggested that Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was “problematic” and claims it “promotes bullying.” There was actually a big uproar over this suggestion, as many people love the Christmas film and consider if one of the best movies of the holiday season. The controversy and feelings about the film seem to shared by a small group because Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was just voted the best Christmas movie.

CBS

According to a poll run by The Hollywood Reporter, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is the most loved Christmas movie. The poll surveyed 2,200 adults from November 15th to the 18th and the results determined that 83% of respondents had a favorable response to Rudolph. After Rudolph, respondents also favored A Charlie Brown Christmas, the animated version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and Home Alone.

CBS

Poll respondents were asked questions like “And, do you associate any of the following movies with your holiday traditions, or not?” and “Do you have a favorable or unfavorable impression of the following movies?.” These questions were in reference to movies like Rudolph, Babes in Toyland, The Polar Express, It’s A Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, A Christmas Story, and more.

Out of all the Christmas movies, Rudolph’s story is one of the easiest to remember. Rudolph is different than the other reindeer because he has a red nose. Santa had eight reindeer that help him fly his sleigh: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donne, and Blitzen. Rudolph is Donner’s son and initially, his father hides his red nose with mud so he can fit in. But when the other reindeer learn at the reindeer games that he has a glowing red nose, Rudolph is teased by the others for his nose and he feels left out.

CBS

After he is shunned, Rudolph meets up with an elf who wants to be a dentist instead of a toymaker and they wind up on the Island of Misfit Toys. They eventually meet up with the odd but loveable Yukon Cornelius. When Rudolph eventually returns home, he manages to save his parents and friend from the Snow Monster, thus proving himself to other reindeer and Santa. When the weather is bad, Santa almost cancels Christmas, until he realizes that Rudolph can help guide his sleigh.

CBS

Since it first aired in 1964, the film has become a staple in Christmas programming. Unlike other Christmas movies that appear on multiple channels, you can only watch Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer on CBS. It plays multiple times throughout the holiday season. Last year, it nabbed 8.14 million viewers on CBS the first time it aired. It is now the longest-running Christmas television special, as it has aired for 54 years straight.

According to Southern Living, Richard Sterban from The Oak Ridge Boys said, “George Bush requested before he passed away that we sing ‘Amazing Grace’, his favorite song, at his funeral. There’s no way we wouldn’t do it. He always taught us to do the right thing, and it is a tremendous honor. One final time here on this earth, we’re going to sing it for him and we believe in our hearts we’ll see him again one day and we’ll sing it for him again.”
