Long Description:

Outhouse is "out of order"... So, if you have to go, do it elsewhere...
Why Is This Privy Here?:
Outhouse was built for watermill workers.

History on watermill: The watermill museum of river Vääksy cherishes a tradition of mills in Asikkala over a century. It's located in an actuall mill which history goes way back over 500 years and includes many different ways of milling. There were 3 mills in Wääksy river (nowadays Vääksy river) as early as 1491. Asikkala is a true mill village and there were 40 functional mills at its best. The mill which is now museum was common mill at first, then it was taxmill and finally it was duty mill. It was since abandoned for 30 years untill 1970-80's it was renovated to a museum.
