Culbertson Mansion Investigation – New Albany, Indiana
Saturday, June 15th (7 PM – midnight)
The Culbertson Mansion was completed in 1869 by William Culbertson. At one point in time, this self-made millionaire was perhaps the richest man in the state of Indiana. The mansion was 20,000 square feet with 25 rooms and cost $120,000 to build.
William Culbertson lived there with his second wife, Cornelia, and his children from his first marriage until her death in 1832, and with his third wife, Rebecca, until his death in 1892. John McDonald purchased the mansion in 1899 at auction. The house was then sold to The American Legion in 1945 and was purchased by Historic New Albany in 1964. It was accepted as a state site in 1976 and the restoration process began in 1980, largely funded by the Friends of the Culbertson Mansion foundation who sponsors a yearly haunted house event in the carriage house that sits behind the house.
Throughout the years, visitors and staff have seen full-body apparitions, heard unexplained sounds, had doors open and shut on their own accord and have had many items (including an antique doll) disappear and then reappear later. During our investigations, we’ve experienced many of those unexplained phenomena and have had direct communication with the souls who still linger there.
The investigation will begin at 7pm with a brief presentation in the Grand Ballroom. Afterwards, we will divide into groups and conduct a full paranormal investigation of the three-story building.
Tickets are $75 for this event and are non-refundable. This event has sold out every time we’ve offered it, so don’t miss out. For tickets, click HERE
Saturday, June 22nd (8 PM – 8 AM) at Community House #2
Community House #2 was built in 1822 by the Harmonists, the Utopian Society who founded the town. The bottom floor of the three-story building would have been used for community activities, while the top two floors would have housed some of their followers. During the Owen Utopian period, the building was used for similar functions, but underwent many metamorphosis during the next two centuries. It has functioned as a print shop for the local newspaper, housed a doctor’s office, furniture store and various businesses before being purchased by the State of Indiana Museum Division.
This is one of the most active haunted locations in New Harmony. Many of our guests have witnessed phantom footsteps, moving shadows, disembodied voices and direct communication through our paranormal equipment. Over the years many others have seen full-body apparitions, moving shadows, phantom smells, sounds and missing objects.
We will spend the night on the highly active third floor after spending the evening investigating and experimenting with various paranormal experiments, including the Ganzfeld Effect (sensory deprivation) and the Psychomanteum (mirror divination) before we retire for the night.
This will be the first time anyone has attempted to sleep in the Community House overnight in decades, if not a century. Tickets are non-refundable and are limited to 15 guests. $100 per person. To purchase a ticket, click HERE.
