Inscription.

This outdoor toilet, often referred to as outhouse or privy, was originally behind the Bright Day Lodge on Main Street. In earlier days this was an essential structure for every business and home. On Halloween night in Arcadia these buildings were often relocated. However, the movers identities were a well guarded secret. In July of 2010 Sally Ferrell of Chandler, OK asked the lodge if they would donate the outhouse to the Round Barn. They did so. Sally helped finance the restoration by J.L. Blue of Arcadia. The roofing was provided by Affordable Roofing.
