Adena Mansion is a very peaceful place to spend an afternoon. It is located high above the city of Chillicothe on a beautiful hill that has been very well preserved. I grew up visiting Adena on school field trips and now visit each year with my elementary students. In recent years, many new and exciting updates have been added to... More

We had a bit of trouble finding our way, trying to find the turning out of Chillcothe, driving in a circle around the area, then finally, more by luck than judgement, arriving at the entrance gate. We were fortunate deciding on the 2.30pm tour as there were only 4 in the group and our guide was excellent - morning tours... More

Home of the 6th governor of Ohio and an early influence of Ohio gaining statehood! The actual home of Mr. Worthington and his family. It is maintained with a museum and tour of the mansion itself that gave you historical insight.

I was driving from Richmond ,Virginia to Chicago, Illinois. As I went through Ohio I saw a state attraction sign advertising "Adena Mansion and Gardens" which is actually in Chillicothe. I pulled off the road excited to see the attraction. Upon arriving to the visitor center I greeted the two attendants behind the desk. The center was decorated for a... More

We live over an hour away. The hours for this place are listed as 9-5. We arrived around 3:30 and were told that the last tour already left. We asked if anything was self guided, a staff member said no, muttered something about $8 admission then returned to arranging flowers. Wow. Thanks.

The visitor's centre contains a lot of history about how Ohio came into being. The tour of the house was interesting but too much attention was placed on pointing out what was original and what was not.

Visted Adena, home of Thomas Worthington. The museum was really good, but we made the mistake of seeing it first. Should have toured the house first. the tour guide was very good, but she kept referring to things in the museum, therefore see the house first, then the museum. The price was very reasonable, only $7.00 for seniors. Had a... More

Haven't been there in a long time but I use to take my classes there for field day back in the 70s. Well worth your time if you're a history buff or love old restored homes.

I'm from the Cleveland area and have friends in Jackson county that I visit every month or so and I'm always looking for new things to do with them. They had not been to the Adena Mansion, nor had I, and we all enjoyed the tour. The Adena Mansion was home to the sixth governor of Ohio, Thomas Worthington. A... More

What a beautiful home. Thomas Worthington's estate is outstanding, full of history! The gardens were exceptional as well as the barn and other outbuildings. The museum was very informative...would highly recommend.
