The Allen-Steinheim Museum was built between 1876 and 1890 by Alfred University's second president, Jonathan Allen. A natural history museum, the Gothic ediface was built from approximately 8,000 different specimens of rock collected in the Alfred area and 700 varieties of wood. It originally housed the collections of Jonathan and Abigail Allen.
