It is thought that George Washington's former office has been uncovered in Philadelphia.

The archaeological dig at Independence Mall has uncovered another historical treasure.Archaeologists have been working furiously in Old City for the past couple months, revealing the foundation of George Washington’s former office.
“We could never have expected to find a find like this. Things that have such cultural value,” said Ed Lawler of the Independence Mall Association.A foundation fragment from the first president’s office can now be seen protruding from the ground.“We think that may be the corner where the north wall of the office met the west wall of the office,” said Lawler.
The uncovered office is where Washington met with his Cabinet, and generals discussed military strategy.
