This historic five-hole outhouse was built for prominent Eureka businessman, Frederick Bartine (1888-1964).

A native of Finland, Bartine immigrated here in 1901. Soon after, he prospered as owner of the Ruby Hill Water Works, the Bartine Ranch, the Bartine Service Station and two mining claims on Willow Creek.

The outhouse itself has had a troubled past. It has been move numerous times and has been the center of a legal dispute. It has now found a home on the site of the old Eureka Barber Shop and is being restored and maintained through private donations.

It remains the only known five-hole outhouse in Nevada.
