“The Outhouse: A Passing Americana” presentation, Sod House Museum

August 20, 2016

Event Navigation

Dr. Billy Crynes, emeritus professor of engineering at the University of Oklahoma, will be at the Sod House Museum to present “The Outhouse: A Passing Americana”on Saturday, August 20, at 10 a.m. This interesting and enjoyable presentation will cover the history of the outhouse, unusual uses and constructions, and the “accommodations” of historical figures. In 2003 Crynes’s photo collection of barns, windmills, and outhouses prompted him to put together a unique history of outhouses. He has collected 1,939 outhouse photographs from forty-nine states and fifty-five countries and will share a portion of his collection with the audience. Visitors will hear and see things they never knew about this humble, democratizing structure.

The Sod House Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is located southeast of Aline on State Highway 8. For more information please contact Director Renee Trindle at 580-463-2441 or sodhouse@okhistory.org.
