The Adena People

The Adena folk were unusually tall and powerfully built; women over six feet tall and men approaching heights of seven feet have been discovered. It would seem that a band of strikingly different people of great presence and majesty had forced their way into the Ohio Valley from somewhere about 1000 B.C. - Robert Silverberg

Adena, the historic Worthington home, is located on a commanding range of hills west of Chillicothe. It looks across to Mount Logan, from which the face of the Great Seal of Ohio was designed. It overlooks the Scioto Valley, a terrain favored alike by mound-buiders, the Indians and ourselves. - William Albert Galloway
