From the folklore to the mysterious creaks, your guests are sure to be on edge all night. But, finding cool historic locations are not easy; so, included on this list, is a locker room located in the basement of the church. The venue was abandoned in the ’70s. Renovators took this gem and transformed it into a cool one-of-a-kind party spot. For a party packed with fright, head to a Peerspace to view this unique locker room.
