Garden of Eden, Lucas, Kansas

Lucas, Kansas is home to some very unusual things. I haven’t made it to Lucas yet, but it’s on my Bucket List. Among some of the items are the Garden of Eden: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samuel_P._Dinsmoor#Garden_of_Eden. You can also view their website: http://www.garden-of-eden-lucas-kansas.com/index.htm – not coming up for me, but will check back in a bit. Another site suggested this alternative: http://wanderingwoodmans.blogspot.com/2013/11/grassroots-art-lucas-kansas.html.

Here is Samuel P. Dinsmoor’s Find-A-Grave memorial: https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/21963899/samuel-perry-dinsmoorand his first wife, https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/21963916/frances-ann-dinsmoor and a daughter, https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/191492858/emily-jane-stevenshttps://www.findagrave.com/memorial/191492858/emily-jane-stevens.

Also in Lucas is the Grassroots Art Center: http://www.grassrootsart.net/.

According to Atlas Obscura: https://www.atlasobscura.com/things-to-do/lucas-kansas, there are two (2) other things beside the Garden of Eden to see in Lucas: 1) World’s Largest Collection of Smallest Versions of Largest Things https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/worlds-largest-collection-of-smallest-versions-of-largest-thingsFacebook page: https://www.facebook.com/WorldsLargestThingsIncorporated/, and 2) Bowl Plaza: https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/bowl-plaza. I think Atlas Obscura needs to try harder.

From Trip Advisor: https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g38868-Activities-Lucas_Kansas.html, they have the same three (3) links as Atlas Obscura.
