The garden was created by Samuel Perry Dinsmoor, 1843-1932, who was a Civil War veteran and, subsequently, a teacher, sculptor, and landscape artist in Lucas. He created "The Garden of Eden" on his property in Lucas and constructed over 200 concrete sculptures there which depict his views about Populism and religion. The garden is on the National Register of Historic Places. Also visible are a water tower with ladders, a fence around the sculpture, and unidentified structures in the background.
