Hello - I have really enjoyed your site & thanks for your work to salvage these historic beginnings in such wonderful photos. That is the reason for my message.
Is it possible for me to purchase the photos of the Burge / Lowry (Lowery) mill & bridge? Danile Lowery is my 3rd great grandfather.
Presently I am putting together a sketch of the Lowry (Lowery) family of Euharlee. I would like to include your photos giving you credit, of course, how I would love to make the nostalgic trip back to my roots & make my own pictures but that is not possible. One of Daniel Lowery's sons was Joseph G. Lowery who became the "Village Blacksmith" as did Joseph's son, Jim Lowery.
Mollie Lowery, daughter of Joseph & sister to Jim, married Elihu G. Nelson. They are my great grandparents.Elihu G. plunged to his death when the former bridge collapsed in 1871. And so on.Thank you for any consideration that you might bestow. Ann C. Davis

I took a few snap shots of the Euharlee, Georgia bridge. They have cleared out the over growth around the foundation ruins of the mill, not sure what they are planning to do with it.

Bruce 2-27-2016 13:48
Wow, looks like they have also done a lot of new stonework on the walls! And cleared the underbrush from the ruins across the creek. Maybe they are actually fixing to build the reconstructed mill building that I showed plans for at the bottom of my webpage. Thanks!

Hello! I've really enjoyed looking thru your photos! I actually live in Paulding County and love exploring the area. I was wondering how to get to the pumpkin vine gorge/waterfalls? Is there a trail? Also Collins Mountain? Is this somewhere anyone can visit? Any other tips for a person exploring this area? I noticed you went to Rocktown, have you ever been to the Rock Village in alabama? It's def worth the trip. Thanks! Hope to hear from you soon!

Bruce 11-7-2015 16:24
Melissa, thanks for the comments! I'll send you an email in the next day or so about those sites.

I too have an interest in historical 19th century ruins. Over a period of years I have found most of the iron furnaces around Lake Allatoona, including the Etowah furnace which is submerged deep below the surface of the lake. I have looked for the Bear Mountain furnace - which is described as being on the headwaters of Stamp Creek. I don't think the Diamond Furnace is the Bear Mountain furnace. The post of Michael Lance made here indicates he found a furnace "a ways up the creek" from the Union/Ford furnace. That is an area I have searched - but only about the first mile or so. That may be less than "a ways". The Diamond furnace is certainly NOT upstream from the Union furnace. I would be very interested in any additional info Mr. Lance could provide about the furnace he found upstream from the Union furnace.

Charlie, yeah, that whole series of furnaces has been confusing. When I first posted those on our website several years ago, I originally had several labeled incorrectly, based in part on earlier IDs by folks. It has taken a lot of research, with intensive examination of deeds and other records by Vicki Crowe at Bartow Ancestors, to sort these out, and it's still a work in progress. BTW, she told me recently she has uncovered new info on the Diamond furnace while researching her book on John Lewis. I've covered a good deal of upper Stamp Creek, up past the waterfalls, and not seen any sign of other furnaces, although I was looking for other things at the time.

Really enjoyed your pictures of the furnaces in Bartow County, GA. I grew up there near Stamp Creek and it was always exciting to be tramping through the woods and come upon one of the furnaces. The Union Furnace is in much worse shape than I remember it (I think it is the one near the bridge on Stamp Creek Road.). The last time I saw it was probably in 1979 or 1980. I remember another one a ways up the creek from there - must be the Guthrie Creek one. A friend and I ran across it on hike up the creek, probably onto Dick Brown's place. We would always come across various rock piles (walls, bridges, dams, etc.) and wonder at what had been there before. When I grew up there in the 60s and 70s, the area was sparsely populated.

Thanks for the memories!

Michael, that whole Stamp Creek area is a great place for exploring. I find something new every time I'm in there. If you didn't already see it, I have another series of pages on Pine Log WMA which covers that area. Also a page on the Jones Factory ruins on Stamp Creek.

I am publishing a book on Roswell's founding. I give poweroint presentations about the old south. I will be putting together ones based on my book for this fall. Would you allow me to use your ;pics I found on your website and give you a lot of free advertising? I will not put them in any printed material. My book is at the printers now and will not have anyone's pics but my own. 404-328-8808 psnboy@att.net

Paulette, I sent you an email.

I recently visited the Sope Creek Mill ruins and when I researched the history I came across your photos and website. Your photos are simply gorgeous and I appreciate the reference material you have added. It is a real asset to our local history as well as a beautiful collection of photographs. Please keep up the great work!

Bruce 3-23-2015 09:21
Thanks for the nice comments, Mark!

What days in the fall were your 2009 New Hampshire photos from? I am trying to plan a trip where I will see the leaves as nice as they are in your photos.

Bruce 1-8-2015 11:55
Sarah, looking at the photo dates, we were in the White Mtns from Sept. 23 - Oct. 3 that year. The foliage hadn't peaked there yet, but it was still quite colorful. The rule of thumb for peak foliage there is usually Columbus Day, but it was a little early that year.

For my MA thesis on Cherokee heritage in North Georgia I visited a couple of museums there. One of them was the Funk Heritage Center. I wanted to include clear pictures of the petroglyph and the dioramas in the appendix of my work, and I was wondering whether I could use the pictures from your website. I will mention the source and copy rights of course.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Lisette,
You're welcome; I have sent you an email.
Cheers, Bruce

Followed your link on Mountain Cove Farm cover photo, very nice work!

Good to hear from you, Sherpa! You probably remember me posting many "pine covered ruiners from GA" from the album below on Transportation Wednesday!

You have some great photos of so many interesting places! I really like your research and explorations of the old ruins in your area. Looking forward to seeing more of your discoveries!
