Event description

Description

Sitting atop a mountain in Morrison is the largest illuminated cross in the United States.

Visible from nearly 80 miles away, what was originally intended to be an act of affection became a highly controversial landmark that still struggles with vandals, weather (it's a lightning magnet), and allegations against the man who erected it. Something many don't realize is that this peaceful mountain lookout has also been home to Olinger Mount Lindo Cemetery since the early 1960s.

Join us for a tour of the grounds, take in breathtaking views of the city, see the monuments and graves of notable residents in the cemetery, and learn all about the history and controversies of an otherwise peaceful place.
