Stumphouse Mountain: Home to some of the most important natural and historical landmarks in South Carolina and Oconee County, Stumphouse Mountain was saved through the combined efforts of Oconee Forever and others to ensure its protection in perpetuity. The 439 acres provide a rich habitat for native plants and animals in its numerous streams and towering hardwood forests. Additional features such as Issaqueena Falls, two railroad tunnels constructed prior to the Civil War, and Cherokee historical sites were also preserved. All of this is thanks to the SC State Conservation Bank and public and private funds.
Fall Creek: The Fall Creek tract is a privately owned property in Long Creek, including substantial frontage along Fall Creek, a significant tributary to the Chattooga River. The tract also includes the historic Fall Creek Mill. This spectacular property contains a rich diversity of plants and provides important habitat for wildlife. The South Carolina Conservation Bank provided funding to the landowners for protecting this ecological and historical jewel of Oconee County with a conservation agreement.
