'Animal House' fans: You could own a piece of Hollywood history

"National Lampoon's Animal House" is one of the most beloved comedies of all time. Now, the roadhouse where one memorable scene from the film was shot is on the offering block again.

"Animal House" wouldn't be "Animal House" without the Dexter Lake Club, the venue where Otter, Boon, Flounder and Pinto found their favorite music group, Otis Day and the Knights, singing "Shama Lama Ding Dong." The 1978 film was shot throughout Lane County, but the club near the lake with the neon sign is one of the most recognizable locations. Now the 50-plus-year-old building, which in recent years has served as a diner and floral shop, is on the market with an asking price of $259,000.
