Road Trip Pit Stops

Have you ever wanted to see a giant metal cross? If so, then the Cross at the Crossroads is the road trip pit stop for you! Standing an impressive 198 feet tall, the cross looms large over everything nearby in Effingham, IL. Located near the intersection of I-57 and I-70, the site also features a Chapel Welcome Center and has a Ten Commandments display around the base of the cross.


In addition to the Cross at the Crossroads, it is worth pointing out that Effingham is also the hometown of Hodgson Mill (perhaps you have seen there products at your local grocery store). And, if you happen to be a fan of Hodgson Mill, they have an outlet store in Effingham.
