The Crown Point Vista House

Got this salt shaker on a vacation in Oregon for a mere $16.50. It is ceramic with a rubber plug in the base. For some reason the holes in the top really bug me. I kind of resent dual purpose miniature buildings.

From Wikipedia:

The Crown Point Vista House was built in 1916 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. With its marble interior and brass fixtures, some Oregonians at the time derided it as "The $100,000 Outhouse".

The building serves mostly as a public restroom

And, here I thought you were dead and no one was maintaining the collection!

Kudos and great find!
