Scripture Hill

"Christ died for the ungodly" in eighteen-foot-high letters on a hillside north of Arkansas City.

[Ralph Decker, 01/12/2013]

The magnitude of the letters -- each is 18 feet high -- is considerably lessened because they are far away from the nearest road. They were made (in 1897) to be seen from passenger railroad tracks that run next to the hillside.
