Ballinger: The Cross

Seen for miles around Ballinger, The Cross was erected in 1993 by the Jim and Doris Studer Family in appreciation for all of God's blessings during their life, especially the time they have been in Texas. It is the hope of the Studers that those who view it may pause a moment and reflect on God's many blessings.
