Greetings from Vershire, VERMONT - EMBOSSED & GILDED: Vershire is a town in Orange County, Vermont, United States, created under Vermont Charter of August 3, 1781. The population was 629 at the 2000 census. The name Vershire is a combination of Vermont and New Hampshire. The town and a village were renamed "Ely" in 1880 after the Ely Mining Company, which mined copper. This changed in 1883, when 200 miners seized the plant demanding back wages. Five companies of the National Guard were called out to suppress the miners. According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 36.5 square miles (94.6 km2), of which 36.5 square miles (94.5 km2) is land and 0.04 square mile (0.1 km2) (0.05%) is water. The headwaters of the Ompompanoosuc River are located in the town. This Gilded & Embossed Divided Back Era (1907-15) postcard is in good condition, but shows some edge wear.
