Faux Mayes Cross in Kingston/Rockwood, TN

A rather unusual, more primitive concrete marker on Hwy 80 in Rockwood, TN near Kingston, TN.

The cross misses the typical lettering and message, instead it appears rough and with a different wording than Mayes on each side.

One side says JESUS CHRIST IS LORD, the other is barely readable but states …BUT THE BLOOD… which might be short for “Nothing but the blood of Jesus”.

Yet in size and appearance and choice of location it comes close to Mayes markers. Maybe it’s a singular object inspired by the classic markers or it’s a original cross, just modified, with a lettering filled out.

Thanks to Brent Moore of SeeMidTN.com for sharing that with me.
