Spencer's Pit Stops: Two-Story Outhouse

Introducing Spencer's Pit Stops!
This new series will showcase my adventures on the road, or shall I say my pit stops. There is so much out there at many don't know about. I hope, through this series, I can find these hidden gems.


Yes, you are seeing a two-story outhouse! Back in the late 1800's when a new family purchased the house, they added this two-story outhouse to accommodate their large family. This interesting find can be found in Southern Minnesota. 

Many of you are wondering how this works. The bottom outhouse seat is positioned more in the middle of the outhouse. There is a "shoot" at the back of the bottom outhouse that sends the above waste down to the ground. 

There is just something about outhouses that makes them so interesting. Maybe, because there are hardly never two that are alike. Or maybe, they remind me of a simple time of life. But, I can say, finding a two-story outhouse is definitely rare.

I want to hear from you: Have you ever seen a two-story or an interesting outhouse? Do you have any interesting "Pit Stops" you would like to share?

  3. We were waiting to see how this thing looked as we couldn't imagine! Did you get to go inside too? I have to say, for the times, it is pretty creative!
