If you drive County Road 86 from Prattville, AL, you can’t miss it. Tall crosses looming above you on either side of the road, over three acres of hill. Castaway appliances, plywood, makeshift signs covered in warnings: No Ice Water in Hell. You Will Die. Sex Pit. Help Me Jesus. This is WC Rice’s Miracle Cross Garden.
