Glendower Historic Mansion
What You'll Find:
The hillside mansion, Glendower, sits on three and a half acres. Built ca. 1835-1840, it was lived in until the 1940s. Over those 100 years, it served as a home to only three owners: a prosecuting attorney, a Union Civil War general and a rich socialite. Since then, the stately manor has served as a museum, providing a natural setting for many elegant furnishings and culturally significant artifacts from Warren County’s past.

Noted as “one of the finest examples of Residential Greek Revival architecture style in the Midwest,” Glendower Mansion’s exterior features include Ionic and Doric columns, classic carved cornices and porticoes and a hipped roof with a captain’s walk.
This elegant exterior is a popular backdrop for those looking to exchange their vows on the grounds. Our arboretum is cared for by our Master Gardeners.
