Elbert County, GA. – The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is on the case following a blast that caused significant damage to the Georgia Guidestones, known as “America’s Stonehenge.”

Images and video posted to social media showed the damage, apparently caused by an explosive device.

According to the state’s tourism website, “this 19-foot-high monument displays a 10-part message espousing the conservation of mankind and future generations in 12 languages. […] “The Guidestones also serve as an astronomical calendar, and every day at noon the sun shines through a narrow hole in the structure and illuminates the day’s date on an engraving. […] “The names of four ancient languages are inscribed on the sides near the top: Babylonian cuneiform, Classical Greek, Sanskrit, and Egyptian Hieroglyphics. The Guidestones are mysterious in origin, for no one knows the identity of a group of sponsors who provided its specifications.”
