This is one of those super creepy places that are just kinda there. You won’t get any backstory on who built it when you visit, which adds to the mystery. It’s more of a "stop and grab a super interesting picture" kind of place. It's not really being kept up, so it’s hard to say what it’ll look like when you visit, it could be trashed or recently fixed up or just weather-worn when you get there. But it’s a proper Deep South Bible Belt photo op. This kind of thing is really interesting to Europeans especially.
“"hell is hot"”
A collection of crosses started by the late W.C. Rice, a self-ordained minister, meant to save those from eternal damnation.
We went to see the cross garden because there were so many high reviews on Roadtrippers. I can’t understand why. It’s really just what the picture shows: Old air conditioners and scraps of metal with spray paint on them.
Definitely worth the visit. The property is covered in signage and the whole place gives a scary vibe, as though you are about to find yourself in the middle of a horror movie.
Just visited August 2018 - apparently most of the area was bulldozed recently. The back building still remains s with a few odd the makeshift crosses but not to the extent as shown on the website. If in the area maybe worth a visit, but if not nearby I wouldn't spend the time to visit.
I stopped here while cruising through the area. It gives you an eerie feeling, especially the little shack "The church of god, jesus and the holy ghost". However, it is worth the visit, at least I think so. There's really not much to see size-wise but enough to see what goes on in some people's minds. It was an awesome way to spend an hour going thru the place and taking pics.
The Cross Garden is creepy and gives off some "cursed" vibes but it is not much of an attraction. The "garden" is the front yard of someone's house (you park on the side of the road in front of the house).
You can see everything in less than five minutes. Some hand made crosses and old appliances with biblical stuff painted on them. Weird but hard to say it's showcasing a "dark" part of the South and not just someone with some kind of mental illness.
We have renamed this the Hell, Fire, and Damnation Appliance Garden.
definitely do not waste your time.
Out of the way off the interstate but worth the drive. Someone should use the property in a horror movie.
It's quirky, strange, and worth a stop. It's a little bit off the interstate but worth the drive because it's not something you're going to see again. I agree that it give off major horror movie vibes but only in the quiet creepy kinda way!
Creepy, an oxymoron, worth one visit, but the only time to return would be Halloween. To grasp the intention, one needs to understand the time period.
