NEW ALBANY —
Years of renovations have returned the mansion to its Victorian splendor. The mansion is open to public tours and can also be rented out for special occasions. In addition, the volunteer group Friends of Culbertson Mansion helps to raise funds for its upkeep with several events, such as the Halloween Haunted House, throughout the year. Other opportunities also exist so that people can learn the true history of the house and about Victorian society as a whole.
“It’s not just about the pretty things on the wall or the paintings on the ceilings. It’s about a man and his family and the time and culture in which he lived. That’s what’s important, and how it relates to today,” Stavros said.
