For a few years around the turn of the 20th Century, the Church of the Master at Steuben was Presbyterian, as it was at this time in 1903.  The electric railway tracks can be seen in the right foreground.  They crossed the road to the left in the hollow to the station under the trees.

The old Phoenix Mill, near Steuben, had one of the most unusual roofs in the area.  The roof materials were slabs of sandstone, about the size of sidewalk stones, carefully spaced like tile.  These slabs were then drilled and pinned to the log rafters with round hardwood pins.  The roof lasted until the pins rotted away, permitting water to leak into the rafters and also rotting the rafters.  The stone was originally quarried along the Huron River.
