The Bald Knob Cross Visitor Center, Alto Pass, IL now has an observation deck, to give visitors the best view it has to offer.
Several area businesses and anonymous donors from across the region donated time, money, materials and expertise to make it happen.
“If you look to the right, then you can see the top of the Cape Girardeau Bridge. You can see a section of the Mississippi River, you can see Ware, Illinois. You look more to the left and you can see Anna, Jonesboro, that area, so you can see a long way,” said Gilbert.
Gilbert says the generosity of its donors helped finish three other projects, including keeping the structure lit a night, a history corner at the visitor center and electrical work.
