Georgia, as iconic as the Peach State is, they are also the US’s top producers of pecans, peanuts, and Vidalia onions! Given Georgia’s significance in agriculture in America, it is no surprise that it also boasts many incredible structures that are sure to amaze. In this iteration of Amazing Architecture, we journey to the Peach State to see what they have to offer!
Georgia Guidestones- Located in Elbert County, this strange formation is known as the, “American Stonehenge”. 10 granite stones inscribed with 8 modern languages and 4 ancient languages; this structure is truly an enigma. The stones were commissioned in 1979 by an anonymous group, written on it are multiple guidelines that have led to multiple conspiracy theories. The most popular interpretation is that it is supposed to serve as guidelines on how to rebuild civilization after a catastrophic event. It being built at the height of the Cold War only solidifies this theory. For now, and maybe always, it will remain a mystery.
Swan House- Located in Atlanta, this historical mansion is the pinnacle of southern royalty in the 1920s and 30s. Designed by famed American architect Philip Trammell Shutze, this sprawling mansion is one of the most photographed historic landmarks in Georgia. Recently it was also used as a set in the Hunger Games films.
