    Crested Butte is home to the only functioning two story outhouse, located at the back of the masonic Hall (or now known as the Senior Center) At one time, there was a two story outhouse attached to the back of CB City Hall. However, when the Marshall's office was expanded around the rear of the building, part of the office was located under the second level of the outhouse. As a result, the outhouse was decommissioned.
