16. Yep - 1956
And they had a pitcher pump by the kitchen sink, a wood stove in the kitchen for heat, and an outhouse back by the barn.

My father wanted to put indoor plumbing in, but my grandfather wouldn't let him. Dad finally put in a flush toilet for Grandma in 1963 - two years after Grandpa died.

But the house still had a stove in the kitchen for heat up until the time my aunt (who never married and stayed in the farmhouse) died in 2000.
