Privy Pit Digs

October 15, 2023 @ 2:00 pm

The Thomas T. Taber Museum  will hold its monthly Society Program in the Community Room.  Robert E. Lee, III will be the guest speaker, speaking on his experiences of digging privy pits and the interesting finds he has found. The privy, or outhouse, was often used to discard unwanted items and often the repository for loosely-handled items like marbles, dolls and even false teeth! Lee has worked on over four hundred outhouse digs and will bring a number of interesting artifacts including his latest find.  The lecture, sponsored by Van Campen Motors, is free and open to the public.
