Walnut Shade, Missouri: Branson Cross: Largest in America

218 feet high, completed in late 2018. So high it had to have FAA warning beacons mounted on top.

US-160, Walnut Shade, MO
Despite its name, the cross is not in Branson. Drive north out of Branson on US-65. Take the exit at US-160, then drive west to the Cross.

Branson Cross: Largest in America

Largest cross in America. Erected in September, 2019. Can be seen while on Highway 65.

[Ken, 09/02/2020]

218 feet high. No cross previously reached 200 feet, because at that height you have to attach FAA warning beacons to the top, and previous Big Cross builders regarded that as disfiguring and/or sacrilegious. The Branson Cross people did not. Oct. 2020: Photo added.
