ELBERTON, Georgia, 7th July, 2022 (WAM) — Investigators from several law enforcement agencies converged on a rural site east of Atlanta on Wednesday seeking clues to an explosion they say heavily damaged the Georgia Guidestones, a peculiar granite monument locals call “America’s Stonehenge,” Reuters reported.

A large portion of the structure was destroyed before dawn on Wednesday when “unknown individuals detonated an explosive device,” the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) said on its Twitter feed.

The collection of gray monoliths was erected in 1980 in the middle of a large field near the town of Elberton, Georgia, off Highway 77, and is listed as a tourist attraction by the state’s travel site and the Elbert County Chamber of Commerce.
