The Cross at Effingham Illinois by Debra Martz
On a number of occasions I have driven by this Cross but always on a strict timeline. This year was different and we had a few hours to spare so at long last a visit to the cross was made. The cross is located at the crossroads of I-57 and I-70 in Effingham, Illinois. It stands 198' tall, 113 feet wide, forged out of over 180 tons of steel and anchored by unimaginable amounts of steel & cement! It is surrounded by granite monuments for each of the 10 commandments with an inspirational audio at each monument, also. Most importantly, as stated by the crossusa.org, "The site is intended to serve as a beacon of hope to the 50,000 travelers estimated to pass the site each day."
