Indian Steps Museum, Airville, Pennsylvania

http://www.indiansteps.org/page2.html

The museum is a 100 year old Arts and Crafts style cabin; over 10,000 Native American Artifacts imbedded in the structure. There are artifact collections from the Susquehannock Indians, North American tribes, Early/Middle Late Wood tribes, Paleo/Archaic and Transition tribes, Susquehanna and Tidewater Canals and and a display of the Holtwood Dam and Hydroelectric Facility

There is also 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.

    7 out of 30 showed up for a fantastic historic muesum on the Susquehanna, a nice lunch in the sun, and a great scenic hike along Otter Creek & the Susquehanne @65'F in mostly sunny skies. The wildflowers wer nice, 1 deer ran by, and the Otter Creek crossing I will never forget!
