This Creepy Asylum In Washington Is Still Standing…And Still Disturbing

The Northern State Mental Hospital in Sedro-Woolley has an absolutely fascinating history. Established in 1909, the hospital was a self-sufficient facility with a number of production buildings – including a 700-acre farm. After it closed down in 1973, the property was handed over to the county to turn into a recreation area. Some parts of the complex are still in use for Job Corps, while other buildings are open for the public to explore. Some have even been lucky enough to tour inside, and have thankfully shared these photos for a closer look at this abandoned asylum in Washington:

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Are there any hikes to abandoned places in Washington?

If you love to discover abandoned places and ghost towns, you may want to try hiking to one in Washington. The Melmont Ghost Town Trail in Pierce County leads you directly to an abandoned village. Be prepared though because it’s a seven-mile out-and-back trek, although it is fairly easy. When you get to the former village of Melmont, you can explore the grounds where you will see the ruins of a town that once thrived here until the 1920s. 

Are there any road trips to haunted places in Washington?

Your friends here at OIYS have put together a bone-chilling road trip that will take you to some of the most terrifying places around the state. It starts at the Butterworth Building in Seattle which used to be a mortuary (but has since been turned into an Irish pub) and it ends at Tacoma’s Old City Hall which consistently experiences unexplained phenomena.
