This is an interesting place. Kind of mysterious and strange. It's free and easy to find so why not stop by.

I have no idea what this weird monument is. There are plaques explaining it, but it still isn't clear if it's some testament to a New World Order, a Georgia Stonehenge complete with calendar, astronomical tools, etc., a secret thing for a secret group, or an elaborate prank. The lack of clarity and the mystery around "Mr. Christian" who commissioned... More

I have heard about the Guidestones for years, but had never visited until last week. The stones are easy to find, and visible from the highway. There is no price of admission, and you're welcome to spend as much time as you wish taking in the stones and their message. The only caveat, the stones are in the middle of... More

This is one of those must see things if you are in the area. It almost gives you an eerie feeling. It has a very powerful message on it, written in 9 languages, to the masses of the world. I am interested to know what the holes in it are for. The size of theses stones are almost as amazing... More

I'd never even heard of this place until a friend who lives in the area printed out a description of it from the Internet. It sits in the middle of no where, right between two horse pastures. There is an area off to the side that has a small description of what the stones are all about but you'll learn... More

The Georgia Guidestones are surrounded in mystery. The structure was commissioned to be erected through a bank and an anonymous donor. Still today the mystery still existd around the meaning and individual that funded the project. I agree with some it does wierd you out a little reading the 10 instructions and seeing them in multiple languages. The structure is... More

The Georgia Guidestones is Elbert County's little mystery. No one knows who provided the funding to build them except for one man and he is dead. There is much controversy surrounding them as some feel they are evil and some say they are a direction to man for the future. Whatever they are, they are a fascinating piece of history... More
