Indian Steps Cabin, also known as Indian Steps Museum, is a historic memorial and museum located at Lower Chanceford Township, York County, Pennsylvania. It was built between 1908 and 1912, and is an eclectic Bungalow / American Craftsman-style building. It is essentially "L"-shaped with two wings extending from a circular "Kiva." The foundation and first story is constructed of local, well-cut stone. The second story is stucco on frame. The house features a stone tower with observation deck. It also has numerous cement panels containing inscriptions and embedded Native American artifacts. Also on the property are a contributing summer kitchen and picnic shed. It was built by Judge John Edward Vandersloot, a prominent attorney from York, Pennsylvania, as a memorial and museum to Native American culture. Originally a private museum, in 1939, it became a museum generally open to the public.
