RentCafé says “they don’t make ’em like they used to” and to prove their point, they recently highlighted the top 20 oldest buildings still renting today – some of which are more than 135 years old.
“The oldest apartment building on our list is the quaint Pendleton in Cincinnati, OH. Dating back to before the Civil War, the red brick structure is alive with residents inhabiting its 78 rental units. And it’s not just the 171-year-old Pendleton that still has some life left in it! Some of today’s apartment communities witnessed the glitz and innovation of the Gilded Age, while others rode out two World Wars.”
