World’s Miracle Cross Garden

Title:World’s Miracle Cross Garden
Location:Prattville, AL
Description:On two small hillsides abutting County Road 86 in Alabama stand thousands of wooden crosses and a smattering of old washing machines, fridges, and other pieces of scrap metal. They all hold messages of despair. “Hell is hot.” “You Will Die.” Stuff like that. William C. Rice, who died in 2004, built this “garden” as a testament to his salvation by Christ in the late 1970s. While frightening in its fervor, the collection is an example of folk art at its most primitive.
