Unusual Harrison Mayes Roadside Cross and Display in Tazewell, TN

This is a more unusual display of large letters spelling PREPARE TO MEET GOD and a cross laying flat in the ground.

Thanks to Martha Carver for pointing out the iconic red white and black sign “GET RIGHT WITH GOD” left of the Tazewell, TN Church of God.

One of Mayes’ earliest crosses and “the largest sign he ever made was located in his wife Lillie’s garden behind their small home in Fork Ridge, TN. In the early 1940’s, Harrison made a gigantic rock sign of 36 foot letters that read “V – IN GOD.” It was flat on the ground as it was intended to be seen from the air and contained 300 tons of white-washed rocks brought to the site in a wheelbarrow.”
