The Neal Log House is a historic log cabin built in 1765 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Neal Log House is the oldest existing residential structure in Pittsburgh and one of the last few buildings left from the eighteenth century. The two other buildings - the Old Stone Inn, 1756 and The Fort Pitt Block House, 1764 are not residential structures. The Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation placed a Historic Landmark Plaque on the building in 1970. In 1977, it was named a City of Pittsburgh Designated Historic Structure. It is part of Schenley Park U. S. Historic District The house was originally called the "Neal Log House" which is the predominant spelling of the family’s name. However in various documents the last name was spelled Neil and on one document Neill. In 1969 Charles Covert Arensberg wrote a paper entitled "The spelling of Robert Neill who built the Neill Log House in Schenley Park". It is now known that Arensberg made several erroneous assumptions about the spelling of the last name. Unfortunately the 1969 paper was used to submit to the city to change the name from "Neal" to "Neill" in spite of the fact the most common spelling of the family’s name was "Neal". [6].
