Did You Know There Was a Prize for America’s Best Restroom?
Neither did I. But there is, and the folks of Lucas, Kansas are on pins and needles to see if their public toilet takes the crown.
Back in 2008, the residents of Lucas, Kansas forged together because they felt there was a need for a public restroom. Fours years later, after much fundraising, a design was approved (in the shape of a toilet) and the facility was completed.
In a contest where people could vote for their favorite restroom in the U.S., the tiny Russell County town’s only public restroom quickly rose to the top. So far, the Lucas Bowl Plaza — which is shaped like a giant toilet — is second in the nation, behind Longwood Gardens in Philadelphia.- The Witchita Eagle
