Indian Steps Cabin

Indian Steps Museum

Indian Steps Museum is a memorial to the Native Americans who lived along the Susquehanna River. There are many exhibits with artifacts that date back to 10,000 BC that include pottery, stone tools, and arrowheads. The Cabin was completed in 1912 by John Edward Vandersloot who started the construction of the cabin to house the many artifacts that he had found in the area. The museum has been open to the public since the 1940s and was possibly the first native American museum in the United States. The Indian Steps Cabin was entered in the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.

The grounds of Indian Steps Museum and the adjacent Ulmer-Root-Haines Memorial Trail are a wildlife sanctuary operated by the Conservation Society. The grounds contain an abundance of native flora and fauna.
