Barney Smith was both a preacher and a plumber, but he was best known as the creator of the Toilet Seat Art Museum. It wasn’t the legacy he set out to create, but it’s one he was proud to own. In this special episode of San Antonio Storybook, we pay a special tribute to Barney, who passed away last week at the age of 98.

Brantley Hightower is an architect at HiWorks. He also teaches at San Antonio College and is the interim editor of Texas Architect magazine.
