The monument stands at an approximate elevation of 750 feet (230 m) above sea level, about 90 miles (140 km) east of Atlanta, 45 miles (72 km) from Athens, Georgia, and 9 miles (14 km) north of the center of the city of Elberton.
One slab stands in the center, with four arranged around it. A capstone lies on top of the five slabs, which are astronomically aligned. An additional stone tablet, which is set in the ground a short distance to the west of the structure, provides some notes on the history and purpose of the guide stones. The structure is sometimes referred to as an "American Stonehenge".
The monument is 19 feet 3 inches (5.87 m) tall, made from (formerly) six granite slabs weighing 237,746 pounds (107,840 kg) in all.
On July 6, 2022, the guide stones were partially destroyed. Some initial reports say it may have been a bombing.
