Great Cross of Christ

Located at Jumonville, Pennsylvania, USA, this huge steel cross is the largest in the world. Dedicated on September, 9, 1950, the 60-foot high cross stands atop a six-foot tall concrete base on Dunbar's Knob, which itself is 2,480 feet above sea level. On a clear day you can see three states, Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia from the base of the cross.
