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.
