History

Also referred to as The Castle on the Hill, Shelton McMurphey Johnson House was originally built in 1887 for Adah and Thomas Winthrop Shelton. Their daughter, Alberta later married Robert McMurphey, the second namesake of the estate. Beyond acting as a family home, at one period the property was also a farm to a certain extent and housed a number of horses, cows, and chickens. After the deaths of the original family members, Eva and Curtis Johnson purchased the home and, aside from residing there, used it as a base for their psychology practices. Eva had been a close friend of the Shelton McMurphy family and after her death, the manor became transferred ownership to the city of Eugene. It now opens its doors to the general public, sharing a piece of American history and architecture with interested visitors.
