This Abandoned Preparatory School in Indiana Is Still Hiding Its Bone-Chilling Secrets
Located in Cedar Lake, Indiana is an abandoned boys’ preparatory school named Salesians Prep School. It was back in the 1950s that the Catholic Salesian Order of New York purchased the property and turned it into a 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.
