The Steuben Memorial State Historic Site is a historic location and state park in the eastern part of Steuben, Oneida County, New York, that honors Baron von Steuben, the "Drillmaster of the American Revolution." The land in this part of Oneida County was part of a 16,000-acre (6,500 ha) land grant made to von Steuben for his services to the United States. He used the land for his summer residence. He is buried at the memorial, a "Sacred Grove." The site includes the memorial tomb and reconstructed log cabin (1937) and several smaller elements including a memorial plaque bearing stone, a series of historic markers, and a landscaping structure.
