The Georgia Guidestones is one of America’s strangest monument located on the highest hilltop in Elbert County, Georgia. It consist of four massive slabs of polished granite arranged in the N-S and E-W direction around a central column and topped by a capstone. Each slab is 19 feet tall and weighs 20 tons. Written on the four slabs are ten commandments left by the monument's anonymous sponsors, who refer to themselves only as "a small group of Americans who seek the age of reason".
