This stately home was built in the 1840's at the height of the Classical Revival Period. The stone cornice is unusual and tradition has it the bricks used in the facade were brought from Baltimore. The remaining bricks were made in a foundry in the basement. The Fullerton Family purchased the home a few years later and brought with them the exquisitely carved Federal Mantle in the home's parlor. The home stayed with the Fullerton's for the next 150 years. Being passed down through the women of the family- "Fullerton, Day & Dick". During the 40's the home was turned into three apartments. Bill Hirsch bought the house in 2002. Restoring it to its original floor plan. It opened in July, 2003 as the, "Atwood House Bed & Breakfast". The house is furnished to reflect the style of the times. Handmade oriental rugs adorn the Northern Pine floors. Walnut, Cherry and Mahogany antiques are used throughout the house. Converted gas Chandeliers hang in the parlor, Dining Room and Ballroom. A collection of Blue & White, and Rose Medallion China grace the breakfronts.

A great, friendly bed and breakfast set in the most interesting portion of Chillicothe. The room was impeccably clean, comfortable and decorated to a high standard. Breakfast was excellent and Mr. Hirsch is an incredible host. We look forward to visiting The Atwood House again. Overall, highly recommended.

My wife and I spent the weekend at the Atwood House and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The home itself is beautifully decorated and impeccibly maintained. Rooms are large and beds are comfortable. Bill Hirsch makes every guest feel special and serves a magnificent breakfast in an elegant dining room. Chillicothe is very much worth a weekend of sightseeing. Jeff & Karen O'Mara

I'd highly recommend this B&B for your visit to the Hocking Hills or Chillicothe. We stayed here after a production of Tecumseh (about 10-15 minutes away) and a day of hiking in the Hocking Hills (about 30-45 minutes away). It's a quiet place, extremely well appointed and has a fantastic gourmet breakfast. The host is incredibly interesting and a fantastic cook. You can't go wrong with this B&B and we look forward to returning for another adventure another day.
