On any road trip you’ll inevitably have to stop for a bathroom break. But sometimes that bathroom can actually be the destination. And Gays, Illinois is home to just that destination: a two-story outhouse.

While it is no longer open for the public to use, this outhouse has two levels and dates back to 1872. Originally it stood at the back of a general store to give residents of an upstairs apartment access to a private bathroom. In 1984 the store was town down and today the outhouse lives on a small park.
