Midway U.S.A Garden of Eden Lucas, Kansas. Top: Adam and Eve. Bottom: Mausoleum. This is one of the most unusual places you will ever visit. The actual figures of Adam and Eve in the “Garden of Eden” are on the west side of the house. To the east of the Cabin home, Mr. Dinsmoor built a 40 ft. high mausoleum of native limestone, using rock which run the full length of the structure. He also built his own coffin using cement for its construction.
