The Daniel and Catherine Christian House, located in Eugene, Oregon, is a house listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[2] Constructed c. 1855, the house is the oldest residential structure in Eugene and one of six remaining classical revival houses in Lane County.[3]

Daniel Christian was among the early settlers in the Eugene area. In 1853 he built a log cabin on his Donation Land Claim, and in 1855 he built the subject house at the edge of what became the Christian Addition on early maps of downtown Eugene.[4][3]
