I’ve been by this Church many times, which is on Patterson Creek Road between Burlington and Petersburg, WV. However, this one particular day was the first that I noticed the two small buildings outback of the Church. As I went past I thought… Nah, can’t be…

So, on the way back I stopped at the Church and sure enough I discovered that these two buildings were Ladies & Men’s Outhouses. One on each side of the building. I just had to photograph them as I have never seen a Church with one, let alone two, Outhouses – Privy’s. Here’s the proof that they do exists… :-)

These images were all created with a Point & Shoot camera. The ISO is 80 and was exposed @f/4 with various shutter speeds.

I do love my world and there is much to discover and photograph everyday that I go out and about...

  1. Ironically enough, until the recent fifteen years - I use to visit many places that only had outdoor toilets. Running sinks in homes were comsidered modern. I remember hand pumping water when on short trips. And these were all within a days drive of here.

    Have you ever been to "the smallest church in the upper 48"? I've got photos somewhere. Near Davis,WV. It has a lovely pond and old well, thought the well is boarded over inside it.. An old outhouse in the woods nearby. And an old postmark place. It's a single room building that is a drop off place for mail. It's not a post Office, and it's got an honor system for post cards and for paying postage on said post cards.
