Sending Flowers to Mount Vernon IN
The city is located in Posey County Indiana and it is the westernmost city in the state, while Rockport is the southernmost. The city is the county seat of Posey County and is about fifteen miles away from Rockport. It is one of the Evansville, Indiana megalopolis areas and is located in Black Township. The city is the largest in the county and was named after General Thomas Posey, Governor of the Indiana Territory. He established George Washington Mount Vernon opposite a plantation, and people assumed he was Washington's illegitimate son, but a descendant cleared the rumors of Posey's biographer, John Thornton Posey. Andrew McFadden was the first resident of Mount Vernon, so it was called McFadden's Bluff and was incorporated in 1816. It continued to bear the name "McFadden's Bluff" until it was named after Washington's Mount Vernon, and a post office has been operating ever since then.
The National Register of Historic Places lists in Mount Vernon include William Gonnerman House, Welborn Historic District, Mount Vernon Downcity Historic District, and Posey County Courthouse Square. Mount Vernon operates a mayor-council form of government, and it is always operated at large in a citywide vote. The members of the council include single-member districts and one elected at large. The CountryMark agricultural cooperative has its headquarters in Mount Vernon and produces more than twenty thousand barrels of local crude oil each day. A branch of the Saudi Arabia Basic Industries Corporation, a former GE Plastics Plant, Vectren Energy's A.B. Brown Generating Station, is also located in Mount Vernon city.
The two biofuels plants in the community include the Aventine Renewable Energy Plant and Abengoa of Indiana. These two plants make the city a major energy exporter, and the Aventine plant developed through a partnership with Consolidated Barge and Grain, another company in the city. BWX Technologies is also located in the city and is a large company that makes large metal tubes and large pressure vessels. The company produces heavy-pressure vessels and components for commercial nuclear plants. John T. Myers Locks and Dam is close to the area and was built to improve flood control and navigation on the Ohio River. It was constructed for shipping for the region's river-based industries, and Posey County Newspaper serves the city's residents and is the county's only newspaper. It was established to cater to the city and its neighboring communities. The Alexandrian Public Library serves the city's residents and neighboring communities, including Lynn, Black, Marrs, Robinson, and Point Township.
