Front of House
Shelton McMurphey Johnson House was built in 1888 and has been continuously occupied to present day.


Shelton McMurphey Johnson House is planning for the EUGFUN Coffin Races that are happening on October 27th right in front of our building.. We are looking for actors to impersonate Victorian Personalities (Edgar Alan Poe for instance) and interact with guests as they tour the house for the 4 hours of that event.

We will not have scripts available... Characters could quote/read from their personalities works or just interact with guests in character.. Actors would be assigned different rooms for guests to come upon. We are not trying to be a Haunted House, but we do want to emphasize the darker side of the Victorian period.... Locally known period personalities are welcome and would be fun!

Possible well known Victorian Personalities:
Charles Dickens
Elizabeth Barrett-Browning
Winston Churchill
Emily Dickenson
Robert Browning
Lord Byron
Robert Frost
Virginia Woolf
W.B. Yates
Christina Rossetti
