On NJ's wooded country roads linking suburban developments and strip malls are historic structures, some in disrepair and others well-preserved.  I'm particularly fond of this schoolhouse, on my route to the hospital, which was started in 1735 by a land grant from King George stipulating that it always be used for educational purposes.  The original schoolhouse, a log cabin, was replaced after a fire around 1820 by a wooden structure. In 1862, that building was replaced with the current structure from wood harvested from the trees on the original school lot.
