Here are three more houses on Long Island for sale that were originally built in the 1800s:
This 1814 Colonial in East Rockaway was owned by the Davison family, which founded the community. The first major renovation on the four-bedroom, 2.5-bath house -- which is listed for $749,000 -- was in the 1950s. In 1979, when the current owner changed the heating system, roof and interior walls, a secret cabinet was found when the plaster walls were removed. In that cabinet were 20 liquor bottles marked with Prohibition labels on them. There also was a cardboard box in which they found -- and later authenticated -- an 1826 pocket watch that belonged to Andrew Jackson. It is now in the The Hermitage in Nashville, Tenn.

Built in 1815 on 88 acres, the Philip Valentine House on Pidgeon Hill Road in South Huntington is one of the few remaining structures listed on the State Register of Historic Places. Listed for $359,000, the property has been subdivided through the years; but the original structure and floor plan are intact. The current house now sits on a 1.1-acre lot and is one and one-half stories and has three bedrooms, one full bathroom, three fireplaces and even the original period moldings and hardware. Because of the historic status, renovations must be approved by the Town of Huntington. Listing agent: Frank Marchetta, Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate, 631-549-4400
The Grathwohl House in Cutchogue was built in 1820 as a single-family residence. Listed for $489,000, the property is now zoned residential /office. It currently has offices on the first floor and an apartment on the second floor. The seven-room structure and barn on one-quarter an acre gives potential buyers the option of an investment property or a family home.
