Christ of the Ozarks statue turns 50

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to the largest statue of Jesus in the United States! Many of you have enjoyed the Passion Play here in Eureka Springs which is where the statue is located on Magnetic Mountain. You can view it from many spots all around town, and then walk to the base of the statue to get a great photo of it. There is also a scenic overlook at the location to view the downtown and mountains surrounding us. Our statue is 67 feet high with an arm span of 65 feet.

Below is a great article about our statue, and the others throughout the world.
