LECTURE: Mount Hood’s Steiner Cabins

Speaker-Lloyd Musser, Curator, Mt. Hood Museum
Mt. Hood Cultural Center and Museum

This lecture is a historical overview of these unique log cabins, built by Henry Steiner during the late 1920’s to 1950. Using logs and stones found on site or nearby Henry and his family crafted economical but sturdy and artistic cabins.  Some cabins were intended to be vacations homes while others were built to house working families.  The majority of the 100 cabins built from Government Camp to Sandy are still in use 90 years later.  Attendees will learn how to identify a log cabin built by Henry Steiner.  This lecture is a good precursor to the Museum’s annual tour of Steiner Cabins.
