Murder mystery at Culbertson Mansion
Friends of Culbertson Mansion, an organization dedicated to the restoration and preservation of the Culbertson Mansion State Historic Site in New Albany, will host The Wake: A Funeral Murder Mystery, 7 p.m., June 28 and 29. Proceeds from the program pay for interior restoration projects at the Historic Site.
The murder mystery takes place in 1892 with the death of William S. Culbertson. As people pay their last respects at Culbertson's wake, there is great speculation about "who will inherit what" from one of the richest men in Indiana. Little did anyone know that lawsuits would be filed after the reading of his last will and testament. As tempers flare, greed can always lead to murder.
Guests are encouraged to dress in period costume. Reservations and payment in advance are required. Tickets are $20 per person, $35 per couple and include refreshments. Please call 812-944-9600 to reserve seating.
