The Cross at the Crossroads is somewhat of an Effingham staple. If you haven’t visited Effingham but have heard of it, it’s because you know about the country’s largest cross. This 180-ton monument was dedicated in 2001 to reach out to travelers and Effingham residents alike. If you have a chance, visit this “famous” symbol and see what Effingham has to offer.
