Mansion opens for season

Glendower Mansion and Gardens Open June 1

Glendower Mansion and Gardens opens for its 74th summer season as an historic house museum and garden on Saturday, June 1, 2019. Doors open from 12:00pm to 4:00 pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday from June through September. Admission is adults $10.00, students $6.00. 

Glendower was built by John Milton Williams, a prominent Ohio statesman about 1845. Since that time the house has paid host to thousands of visitors from around the world both as a private residence and, beginning in 1945, as a house museum.  Well known by students of architecture as one of the finest examples of residential Greek revival architecture in the U.S., Glendower presents beautifully appointed rooms of furniture and decorative arts donated by decedents of Warren County’s pioneers.

“The house only had three private owners between 1845 and 1945, but each family has a story steeped in Ohio history”, said Elizabeth Grauwelman, Glendower’s chief docent and manager. “Telling these family’s stories not only entertains visitors but also educates them a little bit about Ohio history”. 

Glendower is located at 105 Cincinnati Avenue in the Floraville district just south of downtown Lebanon.  Guest may park for free in Glendower’s parking lot and tour the gardens. Admission charged for house tours. For more information call 513-932-1817 or visit us online at
