Authorities Still Searching: Mysterious Georgia Guidestones One Year Later

The destruction of the Georgia Guidestones in Elberton, Georgia, has left a significant impact on the local community and sparked ongoing investigations. After standing for 42 years as a mysterious state monument, the Guidestones were destroyed by an explosion on July 6th, 2022.

The Georgia Guidestones, often referred to as “America’s Stonehenge,” were erected near the South Carolina state line in 1979. They were financed by an anonymous individual using the pseudonym R.C. Christian. These enigmatic monoliths, measuring 19 feet in height and weighing a quarter of a million pounds, were built to withstand earthquakes and featured guiding principles etched in multiple languages.

Although the Guidestones attracted a considerable number of tourists each year, they were not without controversy. Some people disagreed with the guiding principles inscribed on the granite slabs, such as the suggestion that the population should not exceed 100,000.

The destruction of the Georgia Guidestones gave rise to various conspiracy theories. Some speculated that the stones were destroyed by lightning or that they spontaneously exploded, while others believed it was a deliberate act involving a bomb. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) released surveillance videos capturing the explosion, a car leaving the area in a cloud of smoke, and an individual planting a device and triggering the subsequent blast.

Since the explosion, the remaining fragments of the Guidestones have been removed for safety reasons, but tourists continue to visit the site. Wayne Mullinex, the property owner who was involved in the erection of the stones, expressed sadness over their destruction but has no plans to restore them.

The surviving pieces of the Guidestones have been donated to the Elberton granite museum, operated by the Elberton Granite Association. The criminal investigation into the explosion is ongoing, with the GBI and the Elbert County Sheriff’s Office seeking information from the public. Anyone with relevant information is urged to contact the respective authorities.
