January 28th, 2013 3:22 AM

The town of Groom, Texas, is just forty two miles east of Amarillo, Texas, off Interstate Highway 40 which is part of the Historic Route 66. There are many scenic areas around the town of Groom. This is one of the reasons it was chosen to be the sight of Richard Pearce's 1992 movie, Leap of Faith.

Remarkably, the movie Leap of Faith was filmed in the area before the highly photographed nineteen stories tall Giant Cross was erected. This extraordinary white cross is 190 feet tall and can be seen from 20 miles away. This is one of the largest crosses in the Western Hemisphere. Around the base of the taller cross is a series of smaller, life-sized statues representing the Stations of the Cross.

There are other structures in Groom, Texas, which people regularly travel there to photograph. The Leaning Water Tower is a very popular tourist attraction along a stretch of the old Route 66 interstate. You can see pictures of this old water tower in many books and magazines published about Route 66. This water tower was once a functional tower, but then became scheduled to be demolished. One of Groom's business owners bought it and moved it to Groom decades ago. Ever since it has been an important part of the Groom landscape.
