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 the asylum:
