Inscription.  
This small brick structure was originally a privy (outhouse), likely built before the house sometime between 1872 and 1875 (there was also one in the south corner).

It was turned into a shed after indoor plumbing and bathrooms were added to the keepers’ house in 1907. Visit our Keepers’ House to learn more about the house and the daily lives of the keepers and their families.

In this picture, the privy is visible in the far corner of the courtyard between the lighthouse and the work shed.
 
Erected by St. Augustine Lighthouse Maritime Museum.
