Culbertson Mansion State Historic Site is located in New Albany, Indiana by the Ohio River. It was the home of William Culbertson, who was once the richest man in Indiana. After several different owners, in the 1960s the mansion was in danger of being torn down, in order to put in its place a gas station. 500 as part of a Spook Run. Starting in 1987, the Carriage House of the Mansion has served as the haunted house. The Culbertson Mansion performs historic restoration rather than renovation to protect the historical integrity of the home. The eventual goal is to return the mansion to its 1869 appearance, barring necessary newer items such as electricity and bathrooms.
