Pugh, the House features period furniture, glassware, and historical images of Eugene, as well as changing exhibits.

Fun little Victorian house on a hill close to skinner butte. Everytime we have driven by it we have said we need to go there and we finally did. Lots of old wedding dresses and a ton of interesting facts about the area and the families that owned the house over the years.
Good tour with friendly docents. A really interesting peak at life from the 1890s to as late as the 1950s.
This was a fun place to visit, some very interesting history of Eugene and surrounding areas.
