Posey County was formed on November 11, 1814 and named for Thomas Posey, a revolutionary War General, who was then serving as Governor of the Indiana Territory. General Posey grew up next door to George Washington at the original Mount Vernon. The county seat of Posey is Mt. Vernon. Posey County is largely a farming county but has an industrial past and large industry today located mainly in the area near the Ohio River.
Mount Vernon is headquarters to several thriving companies including a small oil refinery owned by CountryMark agricultural cooperative, processing more than 20,000 barrels of local crude oil per day. Mt. Vernon is also home to Vectren Energy’s A.B. Brown Generating Station, and two biofuels plants, Abengoa of Indiana and Aventine Renewable Energy that make Mt. Vernon an important energy exporter. The Aventine plant was one of the largest operating ethanol plants east of the Mississippi River closed in 2012 but has since reopened in 2012 under Valero Energy. BWX Technologies (BWXT - formerly Babcock & Wilcox) has a facility in Mt. Vernon that made many components for commercial nuclear plants back in the 60's through the 80's and now makes heavy pressure vessels for both commercial and non-commercial power plants.
The Mount Vernon port is also the largest port for coal shipments in the U.S. The John T. Myers Locks and Dam located 13 miles SW of Mount Vernon plays important shipping role for the area's river based industries.Long Term Disability
