    This kick off event for the 1888 Society will be a luncheon on May 31st at 11 am at the Shedd Institute for the Arts featuring Dr. Deana Dartt. Tickets include lunch and the presentation. Dr. Dartt will be speaking on the topic: Celebrating Indigenous Culture Through Historic Preservation. She will answer the question: What is historic preservation when there isn't a building to save?

    In recognition of National Preservation Month in May, Shelton McMurphey Johnson House is announcing a new way to engage with history in Eugene with the creation of their new 1888 Society. The mission of this new group will be preserving history through community discussion. Members will be invited to a lecture series and other events that will focus how our modern society is shaped by historic topics. You can learn more about the 1888 Society at
