Shelton McMurphey Johnson House was donated to the university by Judith and Noel Shelton who bought it back in 1997 from Shelton's great-grandson after he shattered his family’s canning company. Shelton had moved there when they were living up in Washington where all their farms are located and wanted to create something for artists that would be an art center or museum. Nowadays this Shelton McMurphey Johnson House has become home to many different types of arts organizations including galleries, studios, residency programs for writers and painters as well as dance classes. Shelton McMurphey Johnson House is also home to the Shelton Gallery which has been hosting exhibitions for 15 years. Discover facts about Family-Friendly Hendricks Park in Eugene, Oregon.
