Notes
Survey number HABS WV-264-F
Significance: A domestic outbuilding, this small wood frame structure is constructed with mid 20th century materials. In the absence of modern flush toilets and running water, it was necessary to construct pit toilets referred to as privies. Apparently the privy was used until 1976 when the property was bought by the BDM Corporation and turned into a hunting lodge. At that time some modernization took place, presumably including the construction of a toilet facility on the side porch of the farm house.
