I lived here for 4 years. It is a nice small town.
Chillicothe could use a indoor mall.
In a nutshell
A terrific place to live or just visit!
Chillicothe was the first Capital of Ohio, beginning in 1803, and The Ross County Courthouse served as Ohio's first statehouse. The building was long ago replaced with a newer and larger one. However, in 1940, when the town's newspaper, the Chillicothe Gazette, built their office on Main Street (half a block from the original capital site) they made it to be a replica of the original capital building. Two stones on either side of the front entrance were actually taken from the original limestone capital building and plaques on the side of the Gazette offices tell the story.
The capital was permanantly rmoved from Chillicothe to Columbus in 1817, and the building which had been the statehouse reverted to being the Ross County Courthouse.

Adena was the 2000-acre estate of Thomas Worthington (1773-1827), sixth governor of Ohio and one of the state's first United States Senators. The mansion house, completed in 1806-1807, has been restored to look much as it did when the Worthington family lived there, including many original Worthington family furnishings.

Smoked Prime rib, salmon,ribs,chicken and brisket. Very good pulled pork and FANTASTIC smoked prime rib. Many small rooms with a few tables each. Rustic decor. You smell the smoke upon entering. Mostly locals as it is not on a main street. We live 5 hours away but plan to come back!
Favorite Dish: The smoked prime rib was Fantastic!!! The house made chips were excellent.

No doubt you'll notice facility this on the way to the Hopewell Culture National Historical Park. Country signers Merle Haggard and Johnny PayCheck played a gig here during PayCheck 1989-91 incarceration. Best known for his working-class anthem "Take This Job And Shove It," PayCheck was in for shooting a man in the head. Wordy signs on the perimeter are tough to read all the way through, but the gist is don't take pictures of this building.

The Chillicothe Paints are a founding member of the independent Frontier League. Tickets are a bargain a $6. I can't say enough good things about them, it truly is baseball the way it should be. Visit my travelogue.
