(JEFFERSONVILLE) - Archaeologists digging at the southern Indiana site of a new Ohio River bridges project have unearthed portions of a limestone foundation on a lot where Indiana Territorial Gov. Thomas Posey once lived.

The Courier-Journal reports that the Jeffersonville excavation work uncovered two limestone foundations, including one associated with Posey, who was also Kentucky's third lieutenant governor.

A report prepared by McCullough Archaeological Services says "Posey's mansion once stood on this lot" and that the foundation may be associated with that structure given its large size and the items found there.

Among the items unearthed next to Kennedy Bridge were fragments of creamware pottery and pottery pieces showing early decorative motifs.

The Indiana Department of Transportation released the archaeology reports following open-records requests from The Courier-Journal.
