So I've heard of the Georgia Guidestones, and was curious to find out who owns the land the stones were placed on. Turns out they are on land owned by Elbert County, Georgia. The following is the info found on the Elbert County Assessor website:

As you can see, it is listed as having NO IMPROVEMENTS? That's odd.
Here is the actual physical address of the Guidestones according to Google Maps:

Anyone else find this interesting, or want to discuss this? It would seem that the local government is supporting the Stones and/or the message on them.....
