Privy Collection - Gone

The "Tel-Hy Nature Preserve Privy collection" is no longer at the Tel-Hy Preserve.

Tel-Hy Nature Preserve Privy collection

Hy Goldenberg and his wife Lorry began collecting privies (or out-houses or technically speaking "pit toilets") in 1960 when one was purchased for $3 for use by workers building their home. After he died - shortly after Indiana University displayed some of them in a museum - Mrs. Goldenberg donated them to the Huntington County Historical Museum and to the Tel-Hy Nature Preserve.
