Two groups of protests have made their way to Stone Mountain, Georgia, the birthplace of the Ku Klux Clan and home to the largest Confederate monument in America.

Armed white nationalists and counter-protesters met one another along Main Street where things have been tension-filled, but as of this writing have not turned violent.

According to 11 Alive, the group of counter protesters appears to be larger than that of the white supremacists who have gathered in the town.

The city announced it was closing the state park on Friday due to security concerns.

The white nationalist group planned the demonstration after a group of Black Lives Matter protesters marched at the park in July.

This is a developing story.
