The Cross In Groom Texas - Easter Weekend Inspiration

Real Estate Agent with Albuquerque Homes Realty 16572

The Cross, Groom Texas, John McCormack, Debbie McCormack


There is a 19-story cross located next to Interstate 40 at Groom Texas. This 190-foot tall free-standing cross can be seen from twenty miles away.   Many claim this cross to be the largest in the Western Hemisphere.


Each time Debbie and I are passing through Groom Texas we make a point to stop and absorb the life size stations of the events that lead up to the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It’s a very powerful experience.  We hope if you are in the area you too will take the time to enjoy The Cross.  It is FREE to the public.


Wishing you and yours a peaceful and Blessed Easter weekend as Christians around the world reflect upon the Death, Burial and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

We saw this when we drove our her from Boston when we moved 11 years ago. It was an amazing sight.

Happy Easter Debbie and John!

I saw that cross when road-tripping across Texas several years ago.  Supposedly someone is building an even higher one in Corpus Christi.

That is a huge cross! We didn't have one quite that big at church on Sunday. I'd love to see it in person.
