Adena Mansion & Gardens Hosting Virtual Volunteer Orientation Feb. 20th

Presented by McDonald’s, I’m Lovin’ It!

Adena Mansion & Gardens is preparing for its 2021 season with a ZOOM Volunteer Orientation on Saturday February 20 at 9am.

The orientation is for returning volunteers or anyone interested in learning more about volunteer opportunities at the historic site. Adena was the home of Ohio’s sixth governor, Thomas Worthington.

In a release about the orientation, Executive Director Kathy Styer notes Adena relies on the generosity of its volunteers and numerous opportunities are available for anyone interested in participating in the volunteer program.

Volunteers dress up in period costume for special events in the Mansion, Tenant House or Barn while others are needed to answer questions in the Museum, work with school groups or pitching in behind the scenes. Some volunteers even get their hands dirty by helping in the garden.

Different positions require varying levels of training and time commitments.

To register for the event, call 740-772-1500, online at or via email to

Adena Mansion and Gardens Society manages the site on behalf of the Ohio Historical Society. Adena is located at the south end of Adena Road, off Pleasant Valley Road, which is the first road off State Route 104, just north of the US 35 interchange at the north edge of Chillicothe.
