“Do Georgia Guidestones Contain Messages for Future Civilizations?”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Do Georgia Guidestones Contain Messages for Future Civilizations? The Georgia Guidestones monument, located on highway 77 north of Elberton, is 19.25 feet high, 17.33 feet in width, and consists of a six part monument carved from Pyramid Blue Granite in a configuration resembling Stonehenge. The Guidestones to Reason are carved in Babylonian, ancient Greek, Sanskrit, Egyptian heiroglyphics, as well as English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese, and Russian. In the event of rising waters in the Atlantic, from a comet or strike other catastrophe, Elbert County may be part of the coastal North America of the future. In this way, the Guidestones might be discovered by future civilizations and archaelogists. Highly recommend a visit to this one of a kind monument.

“Quirky”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

If you are in the area and you have an interest in the unusual, then this may be up your alley. This is an unexplained, local mystery. Is the story plausible? Or is it a calculated hoax? It will make you think once you read the information. Can you find the misspelling?

“Fun roadside stop!”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

A fascinating stop, but I would really recommend doing this one as part of a series of stops or to help break up a long trip or the sort. It's a beautiful area and it's a neat little something to see. Bring something to eat for a picnic (but keep in mind you'll have to carry out whatever you bring in!).

“Oops There It Is”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

I wouldn't go out of my way to see this, but if you're in the area, it's an interesting stop. More like a been there done that deal. Warning, it's in the middle of nowhere, driving through small roads, little farm towns,,, I drove there in the pouring rain only to find these lonely stones in a patch of grass and two cameras focused on it. Freaked out when a car pulled up with two people with their faces covered, I thought we were about to get hacked to death, turns out they were just cold! Nothing paranormal, no strange vibes, just rocks on a hill. I think it's a way to get people to drive through town, Elberton is the granite capital and they do have a museum that you're directed to, on the capstone to the time capsule. Hey if you got the time, do it, just don't get disappointed when you see how quickly you see it and oops, that's all folks.
