Our Story

In January of 2010  the Adena Mansion and Gardens Society was formed and began managing operation of Adena Mansion and Gardens. The  Board of Directors worked diligently developing a business plan that would grow with the organization.  They put together an operating team that would assist in moving the “rock”.  While some task have required repeat efforts Adena Mansion and Gardens Society has been committed to their mission.
