The Georgia Guidestones sit alone just off the road drawing your attention. You can see them from a distance and they simply draw your eye and attention, you have to stop.
The Georgia Guidestones have been referred to as an "American Stonehenge." The Georgia Guidestones are 19 feet tall, made from six granite slabs weighing more than 240,000 pounds. One slab stands in the center, with four arranged around it. A capstone lies on top of the five slabs, which are astronomically aligned.
An stone tablet is a short distance to the west of the Georgia Guidestone, provides some notes on the history and purpose of the Guidestones.
Just a short drive from the city of Elberton, this region of Georgia is known for it's excellent granite which is exported to building locations all over the world!
