Gays, Ill. has a population of less than 300 people. There was once a rail line, and one of the businesses next to the tracks was quite important, both then and now.
The general store sold everything back in those days, and above the store were apartments and a convenience for patrons on both levels.
In the 1800s, two story outhouses were used to accommodate the apartments upstairs.
Outhouse keeper Nancy Goodwin says today you have to imagine the building that once was attached to the double decker privy that remains.
