Area company with Lawrence, KU ties sells Garden of Eden in Lucas to help save it

@JJ - lighten up...

Dinsmoor's concrete and limestone art creations are a wonderful snapshop of the political and religious dogma of the time. It also reminds us of how important community oration was before the days of the telephone or electronic media.
