In 1920, the town of Verosvres formed "an agglomeration of about eighty houses, including one for the post office and telegraph." The town was then served by a railway line, now defunct, which connected Paray-le-Monial to Mâcon, and stopped at a station called "Les Terreaux — Verosvres".
- Verosvres is the birthplace of Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, who first inspired devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the Roman Catholic Church.
