When we were on vacation, we saw a huge cross that looked several stories high just in a field somewhere (it seemed) and then we saw another one on the way to Dollywood. Does anyone know the story behind them or info on the internet about it? Thanks. Melanie

Most of the crosses you'll see that are large like that usually come in sets of three, representing the crucifixion of Christ and the two men on either side of him. KY and TN are part of the Bible Belt. Bible belts are areas in which the people have professed a belief in Christ and social conservativeness and it's a dominant part of their culture. So naturally the local churches will come together to fund a reminder or an icon representing their beliefs. Hence the big white crosses in fields viewable from the road.
