"Ladies Rest Room" - Lewisburg, TN

"Ladies Rest Room" - Lewisburg, TN

Serving an unusual purpose is this brick building at the Lewisburg town square in Marshall County, TN. My understanding of the idea is that when men would come into town on business, they'd bring their wives who would socialize here. I'm not quite sure how popular the idea was, but if it was really successful every town would have had one.

The Ladies Rest Room building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1995. At the time of its listing, it was still being used for its original purpose. For the full story: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ladies_Rest_Room
