Indian Steps Museum

Display of 10,000 artifacts embedded in the walls

Centuries of Native American culture are celebrated in a fascinating display of 10,000 artifacts embedded in the walls of this museum. The museum is named after the “steps” carved centuries ago in the nearby (now submerged) Susquehanna River rocks by Native people who used the footholds to fish for shad. In 1912 that York Attorney John E. Vandersloot built the unusual museum which includes a round room or kiva.

At this site is also the Indian Steps Access for the 53-mile Lower Susquehanna River Water Trail, managed by the Susquehanna Heritage.

Open Saturday and Sunday 11 am – 4 pm seasonally May through September.
