Many of Henry Steiner's 30 cabins still stand on the 140-acre property. George Frazer, who bought his Steiner cabin in 1960, recalls being told by neighbors that the home's back porch, which faces the Zigzag River, was originally considered the front entryway. Although the tin roofing is a later addition, the logs chinked with narrow wood strips, porch posts and purlins are all original.
