La Follette, Tennessee: Giant Cross

Towers over the freeway and shields Christian travelers from its next-door neighbor, a XXX porn store.
345 Ershell Collins Rd, La Follette, TN
I-75 exit 141, then turn south along the service road that parallels on the northbound side of the freeway. The cross stands between the freeway exit and "XXX Adult World," which is probably not a coincidence.

Took a couple of photos of the big cross while riding on I-95. Pretty cool.

There's also a smallish, decrepit Ferris wheel in the woods on the hill just beyond it. Seems to be a twin of the one across the way at the fireworks place.

Giant Cross

A large cross seemingly made of aluminum siding and within close proximity of an adult bookstore (probably the reasoning behind the location of the cross). It is approximately the same dimensions as the one in Sugarlimb, Tennessee, further down I-75, past Knoxville.
