Located on Adena Road, this Georgian stone mansion was built in 1806-1807 by Thomas Worthington, sixth Governor of Ohio. It was designed by Benjamin Latrobe, who later directed the reconstruction of the nation's Capitol after the British burned it during the War of 1812.

A tenant house, smokehouse, washhouse, barn and springhouse occupy the sites of the original buildings. An overlook provides a view of the hills that are reproduced on the state seal.
