This is the home of Thomas Worthington, Who was once Governor of Ohio and a well traveled representative of the Ohio territory. The home and most of the furniture is original and there are hourly tours. Nice visit to get away. No fees

The museum entertained the children with reading the Polar Express and allowing a visit with Santa. We had a great breakfast and made keepsake ornaments and iced Christmas cookies. What a great time. The fellow that played the conductor looked just like Tom Hanks from the movie. He was great! No downside to this event.

Adena truly is a local treasure; however, when attempting to visit the grounds and take some photos, my friends/family and I were accosted by both a maintenance worker and an office staff member. They literally chased us down on a golf cart and berated us because we had not checked in at the visitor's center and because we did not... More

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
