Those Tall Crosses Near Strasburg

Skywatch: 3 Crosses, 2 Flags

If you drive up Interstate 81 through Virginia very often, you've probably spotted these huge crosses at Exit 296. They were erected by a large church along Route 55. The church was recently sold, but you can drive through the parking lot and get a closer look at this proud display behind the building.

I included a picture of the church in a 2008 post that's gotten a lot of hits via Google.

  1. That's quite a location for them!

    There's a place a few hours drive up the valley from here, where you look up across the river to a high promontory, and there are three crosses up there. This reminds me of that place.

  2. The flags and crosses are a striking presentation.
