The Cross of Christ, Jumonville Methodist Center, Pennsylvania

The Cross of Christ erected in 1950 on Dunbar's Knob at the Jumonville United Methodist Training Center, 3 miles north of U.S. Rt. 40, east of Uniontown, Pennsylvania.  The 60-foot steel cross is visible from 7 counties and 3 states within a 50-mile radius on a clear day.

Thousands of Sunday School children contributed dimes to help build the cross, and their names are sealed in the 183-ton concrete foundation. It was fabricated by Moore Metal Works of Greensburg, and erected on August 26, 1950.
