There's No Place Like Truckhenge

“We just like to have a little fun out here,” Ron Lessman, owner and operator of Truckhenge, said. 

Truckhenge, which is located on Lessman’s property just outside of Topeka, is an eclectic mixture of art ranging from sculptures to graffiti painted trucks standing vertically and everything in between. Truckhenge was created in 2000 after Lessman was told he either needed to use the trucks or move them off the property. The idea of making the trucks into mechanical monuments came from other sites throughout the United States like Cadillac Ranch in Texas.
