About the Guidestones

One of the most intriguing granite monuments ever erected stands in Elbert County, near the South Carolina border. The Georgia Guidestones dominate the highest elevation in the county, located in the northeastern Piedmont section of the state. Known to some as the American Stonehenge because of their striking resemblance to England’s famous monument, the Georgia Guidestones were unveiled on March 22, 1980. –Georgia EncyclopediaWikipedia

A National Attraction Since 1980

Let These be Guidestones to an Age of Reason

Visitors from all over the country place us on their route whenever traveling close to our county. Standing at a high elevation in the middle of a cow pasture, this enormous structure envokes awe to passersby that happen to catch a glimpse.

According to a county spokesperson, “There has never been a time when I have driven by the Guidestones when there wasn’t a visitor. I often stop to talk to these folks because I find them almost as interesting as the stones. Many told me it had been their quest to visit the Guidestones, but only now found them on their path.” 

There are many mysteries about the creation of the stones. Basically, the creator, Robert C. Christian, wished for the project to remain private, and it remains so.

There are many videos, writings, and articles about the Guidestones. Not all of them within context. We will post just a few, here, just to whet your appetite for discovery!
