Cross and tomb.

Roadside Tomb of Christ

The tomb replica is on the north side of the 380/82, 4 miles west of Brownfield. Wi-Fi is iffy in the area, so keep an eye out for the huge white cross, and that's it. Small parking area out front. Very nice spot to stop for a moment of reflection.

Tomb of Christ Replica - Fire!

On Saturday, Nov. 19, an unknown arsonist set fire to the interior of Christ's tomb -- the one in Brownfield, Texas beneath a large cross -- by piling cotton on the altar table and setting it on fire. Local newspapers are reporting that the conflagration was extinguished by the fire department, and damage to the tomb and its contents was still being assessed.
