A small placard in front of the Lee House Museum reads:

Lee House


This picturesque building was the home of the city's first doctor. The home’s one story back part was built prior to 1872 and was pulled by horses from the nearby community of Lancaster, about 2 miles northeast on Highway 99E. The two-story section was built in the 1870’s. The front parlor served as a medical office to Dr. N. L. Lee and later on to Doctors Love, Allumbaugh and Parrot. Many of our citizens were born in this house. The Junction City Historical Society bought the house in 1972 and restored the front porch, the balcony and floors. This lovely place now serves as a community museum.

You may visit this museum house for free. Their website (below) gives visiting hours and other information. This house is the only structure listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.
