18 of the Oldest Homes in America for Sale

Dating back some 300 years, America’s oldest homes have endured a civil war and two world wars; countless families have come and gone through their doors. From the enchanted streets of Charleston, South Carolina, to the peaceful pastures of Essex, Massachusetts, AD has rounded up 18 of the oldest homes currently on the market. If nothing else, these structures will prove the old chestnut to be true: They don’t build them like they used to.
