Johnson Camden McKinley House, also known as "Willow Glen," is a historic home located at Wheeling, Ohio County, West Virginia. It was built between 1914 and 1920, and is a 1 1/2-story massive dwelling built of ashlar sandstone. It consists of two wings that meet at right angles to form an "L" shaped building. The front elevation features a balustraded, one-story loggia that encloses a broad verandah above the piazza. The interior has a two-story entrance rotunda, a grand salon, an English-style library and 30 or so additional chambers. The house was built for coal baron Johnson Camden McKinley and his wife Agra Bennett McKinley.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
