I remember driving down the interstate through West Virginia about 8 years ago when every so often, along the highway, I’d see set off about 20-30 feet from the road three large wooden crosses. I’ve seen them in Pennsylvania, too. These were BIG crosses, NOT to be confused with little ones right along the highway that many freinds and families place alongside the road in memorial to accident victims.
Now I know the three crosses represent the Holy Trinity, but is there a specific religion that requires this to be displayed on member’s property?
I’ve never seen these on I-95 or in new England for example. Is this part of Appalachian culture? Help.
