When Uncle Sam came in and wanted a piece of the pie it appeared that the Schuller clan did not save them a piece, and when they tried to share with uncle sam, it was the stick that broke the camels of the middle east bible story shows back. This place has changed hands and i have no clue who runs this cooked sand building now. Oh well, such a big waste of money and time to build such an obnoxious monument.

Worth a visit just to see the beautiful campus. It is soon to be transferring ownership to the Catholic Church, but will remain pretty much the same for the campus. Tours available, or just walk the grounds on your own. The Cathedral is so beautiful.

World famous, on TV around the world, home of the "Hour of Power". Sunday morning is the best time to visit, but any day of the week is an impressive worthwhile visit. The Garden Grove congregation has gone from the rooftop of a drive-in theater, to the beautiful campus of the Crystal Cathedral, the Reformed Church of America invites us all to the Crystal Cathedral. It is also home to the Hazel Wright organ, 2nd largest pipe organ in the US.

most beautiful place in Garden Grove, its one of the must see locations when you visit Orange County. I had the opportunity to come and sing two years in a row for my high schools.
