Andrew Snable House is located in Walpack Township, Sussex County, New Jersey, United States. The house was probably build ca. 1801 by Andrew Snable, and it was added to the National Register of Historic Places on July 23, 1979.[3]

The house is a one and a half story stone cabin measuring 36' by 20'. It is notable for being one of the best preserved stone cottages in the area, which preceded the larger framed farmhouses that were built from the mid-1800s on.

The house is on land once owned by Colonel John Rosenkrans, a prominent local militia leader during the American Revolution. Andrew Snable bought the land for the house from Rosenkrans' son Levi in 1801.
