“Adena Mansion, Chillicothe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

This is a great attraction, as you get a guided tour of the mansion that belonged to the Worthington Family, historical accuracy. You also get to view the grounds, gardens and there is a video for more information inside the museum (indoors). Good stop!

“Thomas Worthington's Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

You wont believe a grand home and gardens are atop the hill as you drive past the two prisons and the sketchy neighborhoods surrounding. At the top of the drive you follow the road to Great Seal Outlook. Its a pretty spot they believe the seal of Ohio was dreamed up. Park at the visitor center, see the museum and tour the house and gardens. Very nice!

“Great part of Ohio history.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

Been to Adena many times. This is a great piece of history. I think all kids should tour here during their school years, then follow it up with the Tecumseh out door drama as they go hand in hand. See where the Great seal of the state of Ohio was drawn. Awesome place to visit.
