Giant Crosses

So, I’ve seen 3 giant crosses along US interstates over the past couple of years. I’ve been curious about them and recently someone at church was talking about them. So, I decided it was time to find out about them. It turns out the one closest to my house is the tallest.

Effingham, IL

Groom, TX

Edmond, OK

Castro Valley, CA

And for a little context, the tallest cross in the world…
Valle de los CaĆ­dos

  • near Madrid, Spain
  • height: 500 ft 152.4-meters)
  • built: 1940-1959

Have you seen any of these in person OR do you know of other huge crosses like this?

Coming next… Colossal Statues of Jesus. (not really)
