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+++++

We had a great tour guided by the most knowledgeable docent, “Cathy with C”. She knew so many interesting details about the Worthington’s, antiques in the home, and the Chillicothe area. Her knowledge and humor made the tour very enjoyable for all ages. There were...More
