Grew up about a mile or so as the crow flies from the bridge on Stamp Creek Road.
One day in '79 a friend and I hiked up the creek - no WMA or roads there then. Many nice pools, some logging roads, awesome scenery. Of course, we were on the creek and in the woods around there all the time - he lived really close. We also climbed the old mining cuts closer to White, and often up Sharptop Mountain, but both are private property. There are at least 3 furnaces in the immediate Stamp Creek area - one above the bridge, one a good ways up the creek and another down the creek near Old Mill Hole. If I recall correctly, in antebellum days, there were supposed to be 7 total, including the two at Cooper's. There used to be a swimming hole just below the bridge on Stamp Creek Road, and in the summer it was always a toss-up as to who or what would be there :) That was some of the coldest water I ever felt.... Good times, good times.
