“Excellent Ohio Historical Site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

The Adena grounds are really good for a nice walk. The gift shop also has a museum with very interesting facts about Ohio history. The Adena mansion is very well kept. The staff is very informative. Well worth the money. Flower gardens are beautiful. You can see the site for the Great Seal of Ohio from the mansion.

You can learn so much here. Take your allergy medicine first and spend the day walking and enjoying the sights. Beautiful.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Hard to imagine such a beautiful elegant house in the middle of the wilderness. Enjoyed the gardens and the tours. The barn and grounds a pleasant walk. Good visitors center.

“Beautiful Place to Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

A very interesting and beautiful place to visit, with a reasonable admission charge. You first browse the gift shop/museum building, and purchase tickets there for the home tour. Next, you walk a short distance to the home. The guided tour of the home is informative and not "slow". Be sure to walk the grounds around the home afterwards, including the "seal of Ohio" site.

“Worth a Look”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

We were glad to tour this attraction, even though it was a bit chilly that day. It was a treat to see the old artifacts and the surrounding area itself. The staff are friendly and welcoming. Younger kids might get bored here, though.
