I have family visiting Scotland. They have castles located there that are old.

Some castles in the world date at least to the 13th century.

Wow. I think about how old this nation is compared to like Scotland.

It's kind of hard for me to believe a castle built in 1300's is still around. But they are.

Early 1900's is the earliest/oldest I've appraised

I've been in houses overseas/Europe that predate Columbus - that was pretty cool. I even remember standing in Cologne, Germany looking at a row house type dwelling and my host father saying "See that number?" (I forget exactly what it was but it was less than 1492)
I said "Yes, that's the house number, right?"
He said "No. That's when it was BUILT!"

Don't know the date, but the owner said "I can't say Washington slept here, but he did water his horses here".

I did an early 1700's property in the valley next to my place.

The owner was the 6th generation to live in the house. The nose portion of the chestnut tread showed a concave wear pattern from the centuries of up/down travel. Kitchen had a 12' fireplace for family cooking.

Pretty cool pad.
