Good article Biscuit...A couple of interesting factoids..
.
Over the course of the 10 years, Brown said a few things about the cross have changed, including raising the height from 200 to 218 feet.
“The reason people are staying under 200 feet is because you have to have red FAA navigational beacon lights for airplanes on it,” he said. “We’re the only cross that got permission to put those lights in. Taney County also gave us permission to build to 218 feet, which makes us the largest cross in North America and the fifth-largest in the world.”


“A few years ago, there was a population study done on the mean average line in the United States, which means if you drew a line dividing the east and west sides of the country the population is equal, that line was U.S. 65”



All they need now is a traffic light
