During the late 19th century in Ducktown copper ore was treated by roasting it on large piles of wood. The sulphur dioxide fumes given off and the felling of all surrounding trees resulted in a landscape similar to the Badlands of the West. Current reforestation practices have reclaimed much of the impacted area. In the vicinity today are many old buildings and abandoned mines. Scenic US 64 passes through Ducktown, running west through 20 miles of state and federal forestland before reaching the intersection with US 411 at Ocoee.
