    I don't think it is oldest in the city but it is the oldest standing Mosque in America.

    I had to look it up and this is what I found....

    The two-story, five-sided blockhouse in Point State Park was constructed in 1764 as part of Fort Pitt. According to the Fort Pitt museum, that makes the structure not just the oldest building in Pittsburgh; it's the oldest documented structure to be still standing west of the Allegheny Mountains.

    There is nothing much more than about 100 years old in the area. I suppose what's left of Fort Walla Walla (not really much) is a little older, but that's about an hour away. The native tribes were nomadic and didn't really have permanent settlements, though they did tend to have favorite areas to camp during certain seasons.

    It's not a building, but Kennewick man was found locally.

    I don't live in a city, but there is a house in my town built in 1781. My parent's house is the 8th oldest, being built in 1789.

    Near Orange and Isleta, Ohio: This fort overlooks the Tuscarawas River in Coshocton county, Ohio. The sign says it was constructed about 1679, and restored in 1952. The plaque reads: "Believed to have been built by De'Iberville, LaSalle's successor, who built French forts in the Mississippi Valley, 1679 to 1689. He located one Northeast of the Ohio River. This may be that fort and OHIO'S OLDEST BUILDING."

    There's a great description and pictures before the restoration here: www.midwesternepigraphic.org/... which claims that "most historians agree that the Stone Fort is the oldest existing building west of the Appalachian Mountains." It also claims that "British fur trader George Croghan" built the fort for the indians for protection from the French (and around 1752-1759, 75 years later).
