NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Christian Examiner) – One of Roadside America’s popular sights, a larger-than-life bronze statue of world-renown evangelist Billy Graham, was to be dismantled and removed on Wednesday from the corner of Rosa Parks Boulevard and Commerce Street, where it has stood for more than a decade.
Graham’s likeness “was secured by grout,” however, according to the Nashville Tennessean, which means the statue will remain in place for now.
The 9-feet-4 inch statue of Graham with its beckoning 17-foot cross — perched at the edge of a parking lot owned by LifeWay Christian Resources, and across the street from the offices of the Executive Committee of the Southern Baptist Convention — was slated for removal as part of the sale of the LifeWay’s historic 15-acre campus in downtown Music City USA.
