Every wonder what happened to hold outhouses? Indoor plumbing, of course! But that doesn't mean outhouses are out of style--they actually have a lot to teach us about history!
Georg Papp Sr. has been documenting, building and restoring rustic privies for many years and has been featured on Boston WCVB TV Chronicle, WFSB TV Better Ct, WGBY TV Making It Here and WNPR Radio. During his talk, he takes a look at Americana through the eyes of privy builders--and users. What secrets does an old outhouse tell? If you want to find out, join us for this unique and interesting lecture on what people used to use when nature called! We'll all be a little relieved and more thankful for our indoor toilets by the programs end
