Topeka, Kansas: Truckhenge

More than a distorted Stonehenge built with trucks, it's a playful poke at local bureaucrats by visionary farmer/entrepreneur Ron Lessman.

Truckhenge

Truckhenge now advertises an art park, fishing pond, and a rubble dump. Take the road all the way to the end, then turn right. You can get out and take some snaps of the upended trucks, but the entrance is about a half-block down. Watch out for the chickens walking around!

Truckhenge.

Truckhenge

Just stopped in to Truckhenge and had a great time with my family. They walked us around the property and showed us all the eclectic artwork. We were there about an hour.

It's important to call before you show up and be prepared to give them a tip at the end of the tour.

Ron Lessman's studio.

Truckhenge

Seriously! One of the most fun places we have been to. We called the number and Ron promptly invited us over for a tour. Each artwork has a hilarious story. Everything is recycled or upcycled. We cannot wait to go back in the summer for the festivals.

The area is a little creepy. Ladies, take a friend with you. Was closed when I went.

Truckhenge and Ron.

Truckhenge

This is a must see. Ron spent almost 2 hours with us giving a tour and was entertaining and informative the entire time. Ron loves maple syrup and those who bring him some during a visit. He also appreciates receiving old shoes and Christmas lights to add to his display. A definite place to visit more than once. He is a very talented and knowledgeable man.......he just doesn't care for the county.
