We toured Adena Mansion and it was so lovely. The tour guide was very knowledable and entertaining. The house is exactly as it was when Thomas Jefferson lived there. The gardens were lovely even though most of the flowers were past their prime bloom time....More

We live right by it and love it. The tour is the best, and the 5K (Kill the Hill) was super, and the murder mystery dinner was incredible. Check out the grounds, house, and museum. A+++++

It is somewhat accessible. The house has steps, but I think there may also be a ramp. There are paths on the grounds, but they are mostly gravel. The visitor's center should be fully accessible.
