Sope Creek is an interesting historic location in metro-Atlanta and was a great place to try out my new camera slider on this personal project. The rock ruins are the remains of several industrial buildings where paper, twine, lumber, and flour were manufactured. The buildings were burned in 1864 by Union soldiers and some were later rebuilt. In 1922, a dam and a hydroelectric power plant were built on the site but later abandoned. There was also a covered bridge that crossed the creek.
All that remains today at Sope Creek is the building ruins. The grounds are now a part of the Cochran Shoals unit of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. It is interesting to note that the Georgia historical marker at the park identifies the location as “Soap Creek” and other references as “Sope Creek”. I really don't know which one is correct.
