Glendower Historic Mansion
What You'll Find:
Built ca. 1835-1840, the hillside manor, Glendower Historic Mansion, is noted as “one of the finest examples of Residential Greek Revival architecture style in the Midwest." During its colorful history, Glendower was a home to the families of a prosecuting attorney, a Union Civil War general and a rich socialite. Since then, this stately manor has served as a museum, providing a natural setting for many elegant furnishings and culturally significant artifacts from Warren County’s past. The dates of these artifacts range from roughly 1840 to 1940, the time in which the home was lived in. Learn more about the history of Glendower Mansion here.
Glendower Mansion’s elegant exterior features include Ionic and Doric columns, classic carved cornices and porticoes and a hipped roof with a captain’s walk. This is a popular backdrop for those looking to exchange their vows on the grounds. Our arboretum is cared for by our Master Gardeners.
