Abandoned Prep School in Indiana Is Still Hiding Bone-Chilling Secrets
A prep school with good intentions turned into a child's worst nightmare. Would you dare tour this place?
A four hour drive from Evansville is Cedar Lake, IN, home of the former Salesian Preparatory School. An all boys prep school. According to Faulkner, "It was back in the 1950’s that the Catholic Salesian Order of New York purchased the property and turned it into the prep school. It operated as a boys’ junior and senior high school for roughly 20 years. It was in 1979 that the Order in New York decided to close the school."
There are rumors the place is haunted by boys who went to school here that were tortured by a deranged priest. While I haven't been able to confirm or deny that, it's definitely creepy and I am not brave enough to check it out. Faulkner stated, "Over the years, there have been tons of attempts to make other uses of this property including a health care facility, youth center, religious institution and, most recently, a haunted house and paintball range. Unfortunately, nothing ever really stuck." Maybe there are other unknown reasons it's haunted. Check it out for yourself!
