The Largest Cross in the Western Hemisphere

That's the description that you see on a large sign as you approach Groom, Texas along I-40. It answers the question that has formed in your mind as you have been driving the past few miles, seeing the cross but notice that you are not getting very close.

It isn't the largest any longer - maybe not even second largest. But at 190 feet tall, it does get your attention. And in the setting sun, it forms quite an image.

We stopped to take pictures. Here, Linda is standing at the base to give you some perspective.

The cross was erected by the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ Ministries. They have constructed a life size set of Stations of The Cross around the base.
