Sherri & Paul Johnson purchased this house in 2009
Why Sherri & Paul Johnson chose Nebraska
We have enjoyed living in the East Campus Neighborhood for over 19 years. We are proud of the neighborhood and actively work to preserve the area’s quiet, friendly & quality environment.
Over the years we watched the house that would eventually become the Johnson Guest House deteriorate. When it became available, we saw the hidden possibilities and took the initiative to restore the house from an eyesore to a neighborhood treasure.
What makes this house unique
Lincoln is known as a city with a friendly small-town feel. Home to Nebraska’s State government, internationally recognized universities, top-ranked college sports teams and a vibrant business community, Lincoln is clean, safe & welcoming to visitors.
We hope that you will find our Guest House, neighborhood and city welcoming to you.
