Near Guernsey in Platte County, Wyoming — The American West (Mountains)
“Million Dollar Biﬀy”
The workmen jokingly named the latrine the “Million Dollar Biffy” because it took so long to finish the project.
The stone for this and other structures around the park was quarried locally. Each of the stones were fitted carefully as evidenced by the structure’s excellent condition today.
Roland Pray, Camp Architect drew most of the plans for structures at Guernsey State Park.
Some of the structures vary slightly from the blueprints. Some follow them exactly. Can you find any changes made in the “Biffy?”
