Magnolia Mound mystery believed solved

Archaeologists say they believe they have solved the mystery of the unknown brick structure discovered by a construction crew at Magnolia Mound Plantation.

They say it probably was a storage building that burned down.

The Advocate reports that early this month, a construction crew building the new Turner Visitor Center found a brick foundation underground while digging to add drainage to the project.

The building does not appear on any historical map of Magnolia Mound.

Archaeologists with Surveys Unlimited Research Associates Inc. excavated portions of the structure and determined it most likely was a building used for storage that had burned down.
