Lucas is an unincorporated community in the township. It was founded in 1878 by William Taylor. A number of Dutch settlers, including Harm Lucas and his five sons, arrived in 1882. A post office was established on February 23, 1883, named Lucas after Harm Lucas, with Abraham Lucas as the first postmaster. The office closed on February 16, 1885 and re-opened on September 7, 1886, with Peter Van den Bosch as postmaster. The office was discontinued on June 30, 1957, and became a rural branch/station of McBain until 1972
