If you enjoy history this is the place for you. It was built in 1888 and has been updated a bit over the years. It's a short tour but the volunteer guides do a great job. It's such fun to see items from a time in the past and realize how very different things were over 100 plus years ago.... 更多
Decided to visit the House. There is a small fee and open during certain times so check before going there.We had a volunteer tour guide that walked our party through the house and gave us a nice tour.
I've been to the Shelton-McMurphey-Johnson house several times in the last decade with my elderly mother and my sister. There are interesting temporary exhibitions in addition to the permanent displays related to the families that lived in the house. I love the dollhouse. They hold tea parties at various times during the year in addition to special Xmas holiday teas,... 更多
This house is in total disarray on the inside. We paid 5$ each for the tour. There was all kindsof junk in various rooms that were shown on the tour. No original furniture or accessories in the house and the stuff that was in the house was fraying, dirty, etc. This house should not be shown to tourists until it... 更多

Friendly staff that can answer any other questions. Did this as a day trip from Oregon City on the train. Home is a short walk from station. Also hopped over... 更多
The home was everything you expect from visiting a historical house. The furnishings and decor were lovely, and the staff were incredibly knowledgeable. The grounds are lovely, and surrounded by a beautiful wooded area. Make sure to check out the scale model of the house upstairs!
We visited this historic house on a recent trip to Eugene. It's definitely worth visiting if going to historic houses is your thing. Compared with other historic houses/mansions, it's not as spectacular as many, but we enjoyed visiting, and it's a good peek into the past. There was a volunteer tour guide when we visited and she gave us a... 更多
The SMJ house sits high above Eugene and is impressive in its size, innovative design, and staffing. We arrived shortly before closing on a cold Sunday afternoon and the two staff/docents on scene could not have been more helpful and gracious. From the every-side-is-a-different-size octagonal sitting room (huh?) to the "modern" touch of having the master bedroom on the first... 更多
