Presented by Steve Graeper and Lloyd Musser, Steiner Cabin
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.
About the Speakers:
Lloyd Musser is the Curator of the Mt. Hood Cultural Center and
Museum in Government Camp. The museum has a permanent exhibit focused on
Steiner cabins and Steiner history. Mr. Musser is the local expert on Steiner
Cabins. The museum has been cataloging and documenting all the Steiner
cabins throughout Oregon.
Steven Graeper is a proud Steiner Cabin owner in Rhododendron,
Oregon where a number of Steiner cabins are located. He is also President of
the Rhododendron Community Planning Organization. Both Musser and Graeper
are involved in preserving the history of Steiner Cabins.
These monthly, free events are open to everyone interested in Oregon and Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by like-minded historical and civic organizations, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
This event is eligible for a History Pub Stamp
