Title:
Abandoned Furnace Building, Inside
Town:
Vershire
County:
Orange
State:
Vermont
Date:
1883 - 1905
Description:
Writing on the historic photograph reads, "Furnace, Copperfield." This historic photograph documents the inside of an abandoned furnace building at the Ely Mine in Vershire, Vermont. The remains of this three-story building suggest that it was used for the sorting or storing of mined ore before processing. The upper story of the building appears to be built of large wooden timbers, while the building's base (possibly even foundation) was made of brick. The second and possibly third floors appear to have collapsed (possibly due to the weight of the ore) due to the large pile of ore that covers what is left of the floor in the basement. The ground outside the building appears to be devoid of vegetation, with only a few small rocks being visible through the large hole in the building's side. season autumn

Relative Dating Rationale:
Mines temporarily closed in 1883 after strikes. Mining was slow after reopening in 1886, and most of the Ely Mine buildings were razed after 1905.
