Oldest church in Salem?

It truly amazes me that buildings can still remain fully in tact for over 200 years.  I am sure that repairs were completed but the bones of the building are still standing strong.

Will the buildings we build today still be around in 2215 or later?

Side Street Sunday – Over Half a Millennium Old

Today my travels lead me to venture into Salem County New Jersey.  My mother told me about this old oak tree that has been around for over 500 years.  I had to find this tree.

I found the oak tree after getting lost for about 45 minutes.  This old oak was pretty big.   I was not able to capture the entire tree with the lens that I had.

It is reported that back in the late 1670’s a treaty was signed (under this very tree) with the Lenni Lenape Indians for the land.

I wonder what stories would this old oak tell?
