Well worth the stop. A beautiful place to reflect on those who we have lost. Wonderfully done all by private donations. A faith refresher.

What a pleasure to see a town that’s not afraid to display their faith boldly fir all to see. Beautiful statue, beautiful message and a wonderful tribute to those who are memorialized there, as well.

It is a great park to relax at and take in the fine details and handy work. It is still under construction and money is still being raised to fish it out. Please consider donating money and visiting.

My friend brought me to the monument after lunch. I had no idea it even existed. The artistry was extraordinary. The detail in the one shoe hanging off the mans foot and the enormity of Jesus was so beautiful. Wonderful testimony!

Large bronze statue by local artist. He also did the Panola College Pony fountain (much better piece), the Tex Ritter and his horse statue at the Texas Music Hall of Fame as well as a piece on the town square. The park itself is still...More

This was an unexpected delight, just off the road in Carthage. Very well done, and a beautiful area. Neat, clean, and inspiring.
