Eugene Oregon History

Eugene F. Skinner
In June, 1846 Mr. Skinner established a donation land claim and a small cabin on the west side of Skinner's Butte (or Ya-Po-Ah). There he founded the town of Eugene City, Oregon on June 6, 1853. The city was incorporated in 1862 and later changed its name to simply Eugene.

Lane County History
Lane County was established on January 29, 1851. It was created from the southern part of Linn County and that portion of Benton County which was east of Umpqua County. Originally it covered all of southern Oregon east to the Rocky Mountains and south to the California border. It was named after the territory's first governor, Joseph Lane.

Oregon State Museum of Anthropology
Established by the Oregon Legislative Assembly in 1935 to serve as a custodian of state-held archaeological and anthropological materials, OSMA curates some of the most important collections in the Pacific Northwest. These include artifacts and records from Dr. Luther S. Cressman's archaeological excavations begun in the 1930s, but also southwestern pottery, costumes from Eastern Europe, and archaeological materials from Alaska. In addition, the museum holds a fine collection of western Indian baskets made before 1900

Shelton-McMurphey-Johnson House
Built in 1888, this house is one of Lane County's finest examples of Queen Anne Revival style architecture.
