Cedar Lake, Michigan: Two-Story Outhouse

Double decker dumper, teetering noticeably, alone in the woods. Definitely not for visitor use, even the sure of foot and aim.

Two-story Outhouse - A B&B?

Just a line about the two story outhouse in Michigan. I work with the man who now owns the outhouse. It was not connected to the train station as you reported but to a motel which is near the site of the train station. I have seen a picture of the outhouse in its day. It conmected to the hotel via a bridge from the second story of the hotel to the second story of the outhouse.

The bridge collapsed in the 1950's and the outhouse is in need of repairs, but is still standing. We, "his fellow workers," are trying to convince him to convert the old hotel into a art gallery or bed and breakfast, with the outhouse as something to draw visitors.

Good idea -- lean on that guy until he does the right thing!

Two-story Outhouse

Another two-story outhouse: I went to academy in Cedar Lake, Michigan (between Edmore and Alma, near Saginaw) and one of the only things in that "town" was an old two-story outhouse. I was there last month and it is still standing. When the railroad used to run through that area there was a station at Cedar Lake -- the women's lounge was upstairs and the men downstairs. It was not proper to be near the opposite sex when one needed to go use the restroom. The "plumbing" can still be seen today. A pipe runs from the top outhouse down the outside of the building where it connects with the bottom of the other outhouse on the bottom floor.
