Interesting Place w/ Off-The-Wall "Art"
Sep 2020
The guy that lives on the property is a bit quirky, but nonetheless a nice and friendly person. It is free to visit and walk around, but a donation is suggested/required if you want to take photos. I've been here a few times, and while it is a decent visit, more than once is too much. One can see the entirety of the property and so on in approximately 30 minutes. The location does make for some interesting photos and would recommend giving a donation in order to take some. Overall, I would say that I've had a positive experience each time I've visited and suggest a visit if you have extra time. The location is sort of on the edge of Topeka, but not too much of a commute.

Very interesting

We just drove through but this place was very interesting. I would describe it as creepy cool. It's the type of place that you see new things every time you go through.

Bring some spray paint!
Aug 2019 • Family
What a fun and quirky stop! When we first drove up it looked closed but there was a second entrance a little further down the road. The gentleman whose private property it was was super friendly and talks faster than an auctioneer! Look for the peacocks in the trees as you pass his house. My kids got to spray paint the bus and boats which was very fun for them! We chose to drive through and get out to take pictures and enjoy the art. Thanks for sharing your story sir.

A Unique Experience
Jul 2019 • Couples
Wasn’t sure what we would find after reading about Truckhenge however, felt the trip was well worth the drive. We weren’t sure what to do once we arrived (it’s private property) however, Mrs. Lessman greeted us from her front door and happily invited us in. We signed the guestbook while she explained the history behind the truckhenge farm. We walked the property (you can also drive through) and was amazed and in awe over the various projects including bottle walls, saw chain wooden sculptures, the infamous row of trucks arranged in a way to signify his protest against the establishment. Buses, boats and cars are included along with a railroad car that was used to transport horses plus plenty more interesting creations. Ron Lessman uses large canvases to paint in his own unique style. Photography is highly encouraged. There is no fee however, donations are accepted. A really interesting and fun walk through.

Truckhenge and boathenge
May 2019
The man who lives on this property is quite the character. Very friendly and he has his own ideas of "art". From trees made with bottles, to wood carvings, to trucks set up like Stonehenge and boats sticking out of the ground. He had beautiful peacocks on the property. 8 in total. This was just a fun time and it's free!

Interesting quirky art park
Oct 2018 • Friends
Interesting folk art created by a quirky artist! His work acutely reflects his creative and abstract personality. His wife was warm and welcoming and gave us the great history of the art park/concert venue.
Chickens, peacocks and dogs throughout the park. Rock/grass path through the Truckhenge and boathenge art park. Took about 30-45 minutes for a brief history and walk through tour.

Wasn’t really sure what to expect when I got to Truckhenge but I loved it! It is basically a glorified junkyard but Ron (the owner) is so passionate about it and it makes for some amazing photos. Would recommend a visit

Junk Yard
Jul 2018
This is essentially the owners personal junk yard but don't be afraid. So many interesting things to check out and explore. The owner is very sweet and loves to talk about all the things found on her property

Rebels and Hippies will Love!
Jun 2018 • Friends
I am shocked that most people in Topeka haven’t experienced Truckhenge. A 1/4 mile display of gorgeous junkyard art, it’s like nothing I’ve ever seen before! Driving or walking through are both options, so it is very accessible. You feel like you are in a surrealist painting where nature, psychedelic busses, and peacocks run wild. The owner and artist will even tell you the story of how he continuously fought the county to display his public art. There is no cost, but donations are appreciated. I will say it’s not very kid-friendly, but so worth a visit for those who love rebel art and a great story.
