The Great Cross Of Christ

A stranger driving through the highlands of Southwestern Pennsylvania, saw something on a far-off mountain top that looked like a gleaming cross. Stopping his car, he trained field glasses on the object and said, "That looks like one of the wonders of the modern world. It must be one of the biggest crosses ever erected."

And indeed it is. Since 1950 a steel cross 60 feet high has stood on a concrete base six feet tall on Dunbar's Knob, which itself is 2,480 feet above sea level. On a clear day the mountaintop boasts a view of three states and seven counties with sights up to 50 miles away. At night it is bathed in glowing spotlights, shining as a beacon of hope and inspiration to all who see it far above the dark silhouette of the Appalachian Mountains.
