Centerville Cross Rescued Today
The cross which had be rebuilt once after an earthquake in 1992 was in danger of collapsing onto the beach below. No one quite knew how to rescue the monument.
But, today, the Native Sons of the Golden West, a fraternal group dedicated to preserving California history, stepped forward and tugged the giant cross back to safety. (The Lost Coast Outpost has more information and video here.)
To the left you see what is most likely the last photo of the cross taken from the beach before the cross was removed. Now the cliff stands without it’s simple monument.
Below is the photo taken just a short time after the cross was moved.
