The Garden Of Eden Is One Of The Strangest Places You Can Go In Kansas
Have you ever looked at someone’s home and just stared, thinking to yourself, “Hey, that’s really weird!” Well, that’s exactly what Samuel Dinsmoor, a Kansas Civil War vet, wanted people to think when they wandered past his home in Lucas, Kansas, one of the strangest places you can visit in the state.
In the early 1900s, Dinsmoor transformed his house by creating a bizarre collection of biblical and political concrete sculptures outside his home and called it art, charging people to see his array of uh, eye-catching statues. And art is not all you can find at this roadside attraction. The Garden Of Eden also allows you to see the room where Dinsmoor himself died as well as his actual body. Yup.
