Posted: Updated:
SUMMERDALE, Alabama -

Members of the Gulf Coast Cross Project want to build the tallest cross in the western hemisphere.  At 23 stories tall it will easily be one of the tallest structures in central Baldwin County. The group already has land donated for the project in Summerdale.  With a community welcome center they want the cross to be a spiritual tourist destination. 

“Being illuminated at night the six million approximate annual visitors and be reminded about what Christ did for us on the cross,” says Gulf Coast Cross Project Founder Jon Butler.  They hope to finish the project by 2015.  Butler says the cost will be around $750,000.  To learn more about the cross and fundraising efforts you can check out their website.
