The Georgia Guidestones, a granite attraction in Elbert County, are located off of Guidestone Road just east of Ga. Highway 77. Elberton Granite Association Executive VP Chris Kubas said drone footage showed the monument was significantly damaged.
The Elbert County Sheriff’s Office is investigating and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation bomb squad responded.
Social media posts indicated people heard a loud boom near the site on Wednesday morning. It’s still unclear if authorities have identified a suspect in the incident.
The origin of the monument is ambiguous. They were allegedly commissioned by a person under the name R.C. Christian, established in 1980 and have become a roadside attraction for travelers. It’s sometimes referred to as “America’s Stonehenge” for its unknown origins.
