Points of Interest

The Georgia Guidestones

The Guidestones are a granite monument erected in 1980 here in Elbert County which are inscribed with a set of ten guiding principles for humanity which are written in eight modern languages and a shorter message which is inscribed at the top of the structure in four ancient language scripts.

There is great mystery surrounding the Guidestones as to who commissioned and paid for its erection. And why Elbert Country Georgia? Feel free to search the web for more cryptic information.
