Elk Falls, Kansas is the self proclaimed Outhouse Capital of Kansas. The tiny community has a open house and Outhouse Tour on the Friday and Saturday before Thanksgiving. Elk Falls is a town of less than 200 people that bills itself as the World's Largest Living Ghost Town. The slogan helped draw some artists to the community and revive the town a few years back. The photographs on these pages were taken on 2011, during the 16th annual outhouse tour.

The first stop of the tour is in the one block long downtown at the Outhouse Tour Hdqrs. A nice young woman from Howard, Kansas sold me an Outhouse Button, ballot and map for $1. The few blocks of the small community had several yard sales, 11 competing outhouses, a quilt show, arts & crafts, horse drawn wagon rides and live music at Elk Falls Pottery.

After touring all of the outhouses, I voted for "King Toot" and "Star Buttz" by placing my ballot in the "Voter's Booth" outhouse.
