This is a highly special place. The Spirit can be felt as soon as you step on its ground. I had a wonderful experience praying here, viewing the fresco, and admiring God's great glory. Go here.

When you visit the town of Crossnore (near the Blue Ridge Parkway), don't miss the Chapel. The fresco is lovely--it seems alive! Children from the school and adults from the town of Crossnore were used as models for the characters in the frescos. "Suffer the...More
