Bald Knob Cross on Bald Knob Mountain

Bald Knob Cross stands 111 feet tall atop Bald Knob Mountain in Alto Pass, IL. The Cross serves as a symbol of peace and was first conceived in the 1930's. Construction on the cross was completed in the 1960's. Currently, Bald Knob Cross is undergoing a much-needed restoration project generated by the Friends of Bald Knob Cross. Reconstruction of the white siding on the cross and relighting of the cross should be complete by June 2010.
