Old Christus Gardens location to open as “Christ in the Smokies Museum and Gardens”

It looks like the old “Christus Gardens” location will soon be opening as another Christian-themed attraction.  It will be called “Christ in the Smokies Museum and Gardens.” It looks like the old manager of “Christus Gardens” is involved in helping to run this new project.  The property was planned to be torn down and developed into condos, but due to the economy, that never happened.  Now this new Christian project is able to open up at the site.  I guess the bad economy doesn’t always mean bad news for everything.  Quite frankly, I don’t see where Gatlinburg needs more condos, but that’s me.  Perhaps I will have the manager of this new project on “The GoSmoky.com Radio Show” in the future to learn more about what they have planned.  They hope to open the “Christ in the Smokies Museum and Gardens” in the fall.  You can read more at the link below.  Take a look at the comments posted there.  Clearly people who have been hurt by “religion” in one way or another are not happy about this new project.  Then again, Jesus had a few enemies even when he was walking the earth in physical form, so that’s nothing new.

  1. I’m excited myself….I regret not making it to see Christus Gardens before it closed. I won’t miss this chance!

  2. my mom, dad, brother and i visited the Christus Gardens when i was about 21 years old 20 years ago. i have talked about the gardens and the beautiful way that Jesus’ life was displayed. people asked where it was, and i informed them. now i find that it is gone. such a religious and spiritual feeling walking through the rooms. i am glad that it is being rebuilt. we have everything, it seems, religious wise that are taken away. Praise God that there is more of us than of them.

  3. I always loved going back to visit Christus Gardens, that was the one place we always told our friends if they ever came to Gatlinburg to please go and see. I was disappointed when it was closed..I am so glad that it is being rebuilt..
