Arkansas City And Scripture Hill

On the side of a hill in Arkansas City, KS is what may be the world’s largest bible scripture written in stones. From  Arkansas City’s webpage…

Begun in 1897, the text took seven months to build and whitewash so as to be seen from the railroad tracks. It was rebuilt three times over a 30 year period to get it the size and shape it is.  Fred Horton was a young dispatcher who came here with his bride when the Santa Fe line into Oklahoma was nine years old. In 1889, he came to be the assistant to the chief dispatcher of the Oklahoma Division.

Each letter is 18 feet high, 12 feet wide, and three feet deep. It is about 475 feet long, and is built of stone from the hillside in which it stands.

I trucked the bike to the city and then rode it to check out the scripture, exploring and eating lunch along the way.

I also took these photos while in the city.
