A lot of words aren’t needed to describe an outhouse door or where it leads to.
“Many homes did not get running water installed until as late as the 1950’s in Horry County. This one features the new sanitary concrete basin that was introduced in the 1930’s.”
Where did I run across an outhouse this week? Three friends and I had a very nice adventure traveling to nearby Conway, SC, and visiting L. W. Paul Living History Farm.
If you have ever wondered about SC farm life in the 1900’s, this is a great place to get a glimpse of what it was like. There are animals to be tended, sugar cane to be harvested and processed, meals to be cooked, clothes to be washed, and even a small church to attend.
Have you ever seen or used similar facilities? The only one that I remember was at the building/property somewhere in Lydonville, VT, where we had the Sweet Family Reunion when I was very young. Just checking this one out makes me very appreciative of today’s modern facilities. 🚽
Linked to Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors, March 1, 2018 where he has some beautiful church doors. Norm covers the classy doors, and I provide the gritty ones. 🙂
Looking for a place to grab lunch before or after a visit? We ate at the Trestle Cafe and Bakery in Conway. I didn’t take a photo because I was too busy enjoying my lunch – fruited chicken salad on in-house fresh-baked sour dough bread with home-made potato chips. Excellent, and the bill was $6 and change.
