Indian Steps Museum, York county

**DATE CHANGE!  A date was suggested accidentally and can only be changed, not removed.  The museum is only open from mid-April to mid-October and I unfortunately do not have the time to host a meetup to this location before mid-October.  Hence the ridiculously far out date :)  If someone really wants to go before it closes in mid-October and is willing to organize and host, please contact Erica.  Thanks!**

Be impressed by a site clustered in York County high hills, along very broad waters. From this point you can see the Lancaster County horizon one mile in the distance, all part of a long winding river traversing some of the most picturesque scenery in the world. Here the river forms a lake now stretching 8 miles and covering approximately 24,000 acres.
There is a self-guided historical nature trail on the ground immediately surrounding the museum. In addition, the area offers hiking trails in the adjacent Ulmer-Root-Haines Memorial Park.
The museum itself is 60 ft. X 60 ft. wide and 21/2 stories high with massive chestnut timbers and very large stones walls. Especially impressive are the over 10,000 Indian relics embedded in the outside walls, walkways and indoor floors and other parts of this great building. A one of a kind building in all the world! Relics are arranged in various designs such as birds, animals, snakes, Indian figures and the like. By this time Mr. Vandersloot had studied Indian lore extensively, and he took most of his designs directly from reproductions of Indian drawings he found in his books.

    Hey all, I'm very sorry but for personal reasons I can't host this meet up today :(. So I can either reschedule it to a new weekend or if somebody else is willing to lead the group today I can leave it scheduled as is. If you have a preference or want to host it, please reply to this comment. If no one responds by 10am then I will reschedule to a new day. Sorry again guys!
