Tour – Two Story Outhouse

Audio Tour:

This building is neither a joke nor political statement, but a true necessity in the snowy climes. The upper story was necessary for more than just viewing scenery.  The idea was born out of exhaustion from shoveling snow. The bottom level was closed when the drifts became too high.  To avoid a big mess, the seat on the bottom story was on a hinge and flipped forward before using the upper level. 

This structure is a replica of an original two-story outhouse located in a copper mining town next to the Ferris-Haggerty Mine named Dillon. This reproduction was built with funds from the Bicentennial Committee and donated by Orel Tikkaner in 1976.
