“Very strange but cool to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Read about it on wiki if you want to know more, but some unnamed millionare spent a bunch of money to make a statement chisled in Georgia's granite. It is pretty cool to see, it has a hole to look through and see the north star at night and at noon the sun shines through this other hole and reflects the day of the month. I don't think I would go very far off my planned route just to see it but check it out if you are in the area. There are no restroom facilities in fact there is nothing else there. As far as handicap access it's on a flat surface.

“Gorgeous tall time stones!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

I like how tall and timeless the stones are and all the written names and words on them and plus the area is peaceful and I liked looking out over the large landscaping of georgia! It's beautiful.

“neat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

A very intriguing place despite its seemingly remote location. It makes one wonder what the intention was behind building such a monument. There is a granite slab, adjacent to the stones, that explains what languages are represented and, most interesting, tells of a burried time capsule which is to be opened some time in the future. The questions remain: What is in the time capsule? Who placed it there and for what purpose? When is the time capsule to be unearthed and by what intended recepients? Definitely an extremely interesting place to visit that will leave you with more questions than answers.

“enjoyed making the trip to these stones ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

It is quite an impressive sight in the middle of nowhere. The site is well maintained, grass trimmed, etc. but would have appreciated more signage. It is not very well marked from the road. An interesting day road trip.

“"Something to think about...."”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

The message here will give you something to think about, and the mystery surrounding their creation and building is just deep enough to keep the conspiracy theorists busy. A great place to drop by on a sunny (or partly cloudy) day. Well worth the time, and the price is right.
