The Samuel Culbertson Mansion is located in downtown New Albany’s Mansion Row National Register Historic District. William S. Culbertson built this 4-story Queen Anne-style home with Italianate-style features in 1886 for his son as a wedding gift. In 1896, Dr. John Hazelwood purchased the house, selling it to the Order of Red Men in 1939. The fraternal organization used it as a meeting facility, building the recreation center behind the existing home in 1950. The current owners purchased the property in 2004 and renovated the buildings.
The mansion retains its original mahogany doors throughout, as well as mahogany staircase, original pocket doors, hardwood floors, numerous fireplaces with original mantels, a built-in cast iron cook stove, servant’s staircase, arched brick doorways, and a ground-floor full bar dating to 1939.
