- Guerneville, California is the site of an ancient coast redwood forest, much of which was logged for the rebuilding of San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake and fire. Prior to being renamed for one of the local milling families, Guerneville was called Stumptown for the giant redwood stumps left by the loggers. Each year Guerneville holds its "Stumptown Daze Parade" and a number of local businesses adopted the original name including Stumptown Brewery, Stumptown Nursery and Stumptown Cycles.
- Whitefish, Montana was called Stumptown as the area was cleared for the train station.
- Matthews, North Carolina was originally named Stumptown in the early 19th century after cotton farmers cleared the land, leaving tree stumps everywhere.
- Stumptown is one of several nicknames of Portland, Oregon. In the mid-19th century, the city's growth led residents to clear a lot of land quickly, but the tree stumps were not immediately removed; in some areas, there were so many that people used to jump from stump to stump to avoid the muddy, unpaved roads. The nickname is used in the names of several local businesses, including Stumptown Coffee Roasters, an independent coffee roaster and retailer located in Portland; Stumptown (comics), a creator-owned detective fiction comic book series by Greg Rucka, set in Portland; and the Stumptown Comics Fest, an annual Comic Festival held in Portland.
