Step Back in Time and Solve a Murder at a Historic Southern Indiana Mansion
The classic board game, Clue is being brought to life at a real historic mansion, and you're invited to help solve the murder mystery!
A Classic Board Game
When I was a kid my favorite board game was Clue so it's no surprise that now as an adult I love a good murder mystery. If there's a book, movie, or board game that has a "whodunnit" angle, I am IN. In case you've never played Clue, it's a game that's been around since the 1940s. In the game, everyone plays a guest at a mansion owned by Mr. Boddy. Mr. Boddy has been murdered, and now you have to go around the board trying to find out who killed Mr. Boddy, in which room, and with what weapon. Now Clue is being brought to life (without an actual murder) in a historic Indiana mansion!
Clue Comes to Life at the Culbertson Mansion
Located in New Albany, Indiana sits the historic Culbertson Mansion. The Culbertson Mansion dates back to the 1800s, IndianaMuseum.org says:
William Culbertson moved to Indiana seeking a new life and eventually became one of the richest men in the state and a renowned philanthropist. In fact, Culbertson invested much of his wealth in New Albany, involving himself in civic affairs, funding the construction of the Culbertson Widows Home, serving as a trustee of the First Presbyterian Church, and founding the Cornelia Memorial Orphans Home, named for the second of his three wives. His mansion stands as an example of the tastes, ideals and lifestyles of the late 1800s.
Now can you think of a better location for a Clue party? I think not! On July 8th, the Culbertson Mansion will be hosting a Clue Party, where they will be bringing the game of Clue to life.
Navigate the mansion to find the clues and solve the murders, all while dressed as your favorite Clue character. This costume party includes batch cocktails and light hors d’oeuvres associated with the film. Prizes will be awarded to the winning team
There will also be a family-friendly version of this event taking place on July 9th, if that's more your speed.
