Not far from the boundaries of present-day Ansted, in Fayette County, early white explorers and settlers found extensive evidence of the workings of an outcropping of the Kanawha Black Flint stratum by Native Americans. According to local tradition, the area of the flint quarry was also said to be the site of a "camp", probably more appropriately referred to as a "base camp", that was said to be occuppied by the Shawnee, prior to the arrival of the whites (mid-1700's).
