Two Story Outhouse

1022 South Pine Street, Gays, Illinois 61928 USA

“Take a load off!”

A two-story outhouse is located in the town. It was built in 1869 for apartments that were attached to a general store. The top floor was used by the apartment dwellers while the bottom floor was used by patrons of the store. Although the store and apartments were demolished, the outhouse remained. Each level has two seats, so the outhouse could be used by four at a time. Waste from the top level dropped behind a false wall into a pit.[3] It is located at the corner of N Pine St. and Front St.

So interesting to see how the "indoor" bathrooms were built.

It was a real relief to finally see the two story outhouse. My children wouldn't be satisfied until we saw the "skyscrapper"!
