Worlds Largest Things
        Lucas, a farming community of 407 people, is known as the "Grassroots Art Capital of Kansas". The World’s Largest Souvenir Travel Plate welcomes you to town, and traditional Post Rock limestone architecture enhances neighborhoods and downtown businesses. Lucas is home to a thriving downtown, a community-based, first-run movie theater, and some wonderful art experiences. World famous outsider art environment Garden of Eden has been an attraction since 1907, built by Civil War Veteran S.P. Dinsmoor. Over 150 three story concrete structures show the pioneering spirit of this town that embraces art by everyday people. The Garden of Eden is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, also consists of a stone log cabin home and a mausoleum where Mr. Dinsmoor and his first wife are buried.

The Grassroots Art Center houses the work of untrained artists of the region. Ceramic wonders await you at the Flying Pig Studio and Gallery. While in Lucas don't miss The Worlds Largest Things just south of the Garden of Eden. Be sure to see the World's Smallest Mural and also remember to bring a chair for Erika's "Chairy" Tree.
Stop by for a taste of traditional recipe Czechlovakian bologna from Brant’s Meat Market, now in its third generation, and experience the quirky wonderful things Lucas has to offer.

Lucas is nestled in the heart of Post Rock Country and the Smoky Hills region of Kansas. It is located in Russell county at the junction of K-18 and K-232 highways just eight miles north of beautiful Wilson Lake, the "Clearest Lake in Kansas". Winding around Wilson Lake from I-70 to Lucas is the Post Rock Scenic Byway. The byway kiosk at the west end of the Wilson Lake Dam tells the history of the limestone used in the area and the towns of Lucas and Wilson.
