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, 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.
