9 Strange Spots In Kansas That Will Make You Stop And Look Twice
To be honest, Kansas gets pretty weird sometimes.
If it isn’t our weather, it’s some guy taking a boat to prom, or a strange building you might happen across. There’s always something odd to check out here in the Sunflower State. Sometimes you’ve just got to accept it. These 9 strange spots in Kansas are sure to make you do a double take.
9. The Barbed Wire Museum in Dodge City
It's kind of odd that we'd have a whole museum dedicated to barbed wire, but history is history, I guess!
8. Mushroom Rock in Ellsworth
This one isn't too weird if you've been here before, but to the outsider's eye, this rock is out of place in a non-mushroom-shaped world.
7. Deafy Boular in Atchison
Deafy Boular was apparently a man with two missing legs, and he refused to wear his prosthetics, opting instead to use his shorter stature to lay the bricks in Atchison's roads. Suit yourself!
6. Truckhenge in Topeka
Surely you're never ready to see trucks (and a bus) stuck into the ground amongst political statements such as "rise up" and other funny plays on words.
5. The Muffler Man in Wichita
I don't know the history behind the Muffler Man (every state seems to have one!) but the one in Wichita is particularly creepy.
4. The Museum of Odd in Lawrence
A couch covered in sock monkeys will surely make you look twice. So will everything else in this museum, especially if you're not expecting what you find.
3. MT Liggett's Political Art in Mullinville
You might not be ready for the messages he's sending out with his art form. Or are you?
2. Wheat Jesus in Colby
Yes, this oddly strange photo of Jesus casually hanging out in some wheat is painted on a billboard, and he's watching you.
1. This rock in a cage
In Lindsborg, at the Old Mill Museum, there's... a rock in a cage. It's their pet rock, apparently, and it's in a cage because it's been eating children. What?
