Adena Mansion was built for Thomas Worthington by Benjamin Latrobe. It is located west of downtown Chillicothe, Ohio, United States. The property surrounding the mansion included the location of the first mound found to belong to the Adena culture (see [ Ohio History Central] ) and thus the Adena people were named after Adena Mansion. Adena Mansion is often open for visitors for a small fee.

The mansion has historically accurate interiors, including furnishings, and also an extensive grounds. There is a garden area featuring kitchen herbs and heirloom vegetables, with some varieties available for purchase. A former overseer's house has also been restored and demonstrates life for German immigrants to area.

A modern visitor's center has exhibits on the early European settlement of Ohio. Documents for indentured servants, other primary source materials and archeological finds are showcased.

Thomas Worthington recorded that he chose Adena as the name for his estate because it referred to "places remarkable for the delightfulness of their situation." The museum at Adena has an exhibit which claims Adena is based on a Hebrew word.
