DEEP SNOW PLUMBING - Though most dwellings in the mining communities in the hills above Encampment in the early days were settled on solid earth (many of the nearby structures were designed in higher fashion) to overcome the problem of deep, drifting snows. Some of these outhouses were erected high atop a boase of cribbed up logs; others were slender, silo-like creations with doors opening high up on their fronts; a few were even impressive with newly shingled exteriors. Most were approached by wooden steps leading up five or six feet to railed platforms in fron of the doors; others were reached by railed ramps from building to outhouse. This two-story outhouse is part of the display at the Grand Encampment Museum complex.

The following are found in the outbuildings at the complex:
