Two Story Outhouse

When I was looking at your website I stumbled across the listing of two-story outhouses. This made me remember a high school field trip to the Grand Encampment Museum in Encampment, Wyoming. They had a two story outhouse there. When I checked their website, it is now featured.

If only algebra was as memorable as a two-story outhouses, we might all be rocket scientists.

Grand Encampment Museum

The Grand Encampment Museum is located on a quiet corner of town, and will take you back in time with vast collections housed in 15 different buildings. Also included in the complex is part of the Tram Tower system which was, at one time, one of longest in the world, the Slash Ridge Fire Tower, and the famous Two-Story Outhouse. The tour guides are very knowledgeable, the staff is friendly, and the volunteers are the best around. Can easily become a half day adventure into the past. Take a picnic lunch and enjoy the weather and views. The annual Living History will take place in conjunction with Cowboy Gathering the 3rd weekend in July.

Two-Story Outhouse

The snow gets so deep here, that in the winter, the bottom story is below the snow, then they used the top story.

Grand Encampment Museum - 2-Story Outhouse

Wonderful museum. Open all summer, has many old buildings and stores from the past. Also old schoolroom, two-story outhouse. The story on the outhouse is, when the snow is deep, the top outhouse is used -- and I forgot, this was a double outhouse (up and down both). Some time in July the city has Pioneer Day and the residents dress in old clothes of the 1800's.
