The cost was $ 9.00 for a senior. I toured George Washington's home last week, this week the Worthington Mansion.....The Worthington Mansion was much better. The tour guide (Cathy) was excellent and had very good knowledge of the Mansion, family and antiques.

I've visited this historic treasure frequently since I was a child. There is a modest fee for a guided tour of the mansion but it is well worth it. You can tour the grounds solo for free. If you go, take your time strolling through...More

It's like stepping into the past. The tours are wonderful and the guides are in character (and costume) and very knowledgeable. Don't forget to stop on the way out for the overlook that inspired the Great Seal of Ohio.

It is somewhat accessible. The house has steps, but I think there may also be a ramp. There are paths on the grounds, but they are mostly gravel. The visitor's center should be fully accessible.
