We pass this every time we drive between North Carolina and Ohio. It's worth a slow down to take a picture. Look for the Liquor Barn within a few minutes if you like "spirits."

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.
