Completed in 1887 by Nels Roney the Shelton McMurphey Johnson House, also known as the “Castle on the Hill”, is a beautiful Victorian-style home built originally for Thomas Winthrop Shelton situated on a hill in the heart of Eugene, Oregon. 

Even though the building was originally completed in 1887, the year 1888 is marked on the house because shortly after its completion it was burned down and had to be rebuilt.

It currently serves as a historic house and museum that also offers public, themed, formal, and private tea time events, where you can learn about the history of the house while enjoying freshly brewed tea with sandwiches, scones, and other desserts.
