About Mount Hood’s Steiner Cabins, A Historical Overview

Mount Hood’s Steiner Cabins, A Historical Overview

Presented by Steve Graeper and Lloyd Musser, Steiner Cabin preservationists

In the late 1920’s through the 40’s, Henry Steiner and family built over 100 log homes throughout Oregon, most on and around the Mt. Hood area. However, the Steiner signature extends from Mt. Hood to Portland, Rockaway, and as far south as Roseburg.

Their unique style of Oregon rustic architecture and use of natural, on-site materials, made Steiner cabins stand the test of time. Using logs felled, peeled and/or milled on site and adding interestingly curved limbs, roots and tree burls, the Steiner’s fashioned railings, door knobs and entry ways that distinguish Steiner cabins from all others.

Join us to learn the fascinating story behind the Steiner family and the storybook cabins they had no idea they were creating.
