Visitor Tips and News About World's Largest Mary Statue
I attended this attractions' festival last year -- it was $5 a carload. It was held around Independence Day. This was my 2nd time visiting the "Servants of Mary."
I would like to know that at least someone's getting use of the "farm-country" attraction. When my family lived on this property, we had to move because we could not afford to keep it. God never said life would be easy; going back there for the festival was sad. Music, fireworks, a soldier salute, food and drinks, fishing, horses and other activities for families were some of the things they had. I even had time to talk to God.[Mandy C., 03/11/2009]
My wife and I visited this beautiful place in July 2000. I took pictures of the statue of Mary. It is around 50' tall. When we got the pictures developed one of them had what appeared to be ghost-like figures at the bottom of the picture. I never believed in this kind of stuff so I just placed the pictures in a photo album.
Tonight I was going through the albums and found the pictures. The picture suddenly became a little eerie, and more interesting and intriguing. I have no explanation what the fog-like stuff is [at the base of the statue]. I would like a professional to investigate this picture.[Joe and Anna, 11/04/2008]
Stopped by to check out the World's Largest Mary, reports that it's as big as the statue of liberty are false...she is quite huge, but maybe only a few stories tall. I would also like to add that she is next to the largest Rosary (possibly in the world). The beads are lights and there's a white crucifix laying down at the foot of the pond at Mary's feet.[Emily & Brian, 07/31/2008]
It is indeed the World's Largest Rosary, around 1,100 feet long, outsizing one that was built in Holliston, Massachusetts, in the 1950s.
There is a statue of Mary, mother of Jesus, that is as large as the Statue of Liberty. I will write back with its location.[Ryan, 02/06/1999]
