Indian Steps Museum is a one of a kind destination set along the Susquehanna River. Originally an arts and crafts style cabin, it was completed in 1912 by a wealthy lawyer from York County, PA. John Edward Vandersloot wanted to share his local prehistoric Indian artifact collection with his guests by embedding these items both in the interior and exterior of the building. Vandersloot was enamored with Native American history and culture, and built the cabin as a testament to the long history of Native American Indians.
Indian Steps is one of five properties owned and maintained by the Conservation Society of York County, a nearly 100 year old nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving York County's natural, prehistoric, and historic landscapes.
