Description:
This historic photograph documents the Smelting Shed at Ely Mine in Vershire, Vermont. In the photograph, the smelting shed stands in the middle of a cleared terrace, and is characterized by its long shed like appearance, and its numerous chimneys. To the right of the shed there appears to be a building foundation, covered in slush with numerous pipes and artifacts still sticking out of the ground. The yard in front of the smelting shed contains an earthen berm and some derelict pieces of mining machinery. The smelting shed does not appear to be in use in this photograph. The hills in the background appear forested. season spring
