This Eerie And Fantastic Footage Takes You Inside Washington’s Abandoned Northern State Hospital
Sedro-Woolley is a small city in Skagit County best known for being a gateway to the beautiful North Cascades. It also happens to be home to the remains of Northern State Hospital, one of those most well-known — and most controversial — mental institution in Pacific Northwest History. Now known as Northern State Ghost Town, it has been reduced to a series of dilapidated structures covered in graffiti and a few mementos of the times.
While you can visit the property, stepping inside the buildings is highly discouraged (and may even be prohibited at this point) because of their condition. However, this knowledgeable YouTuber managed to get some amazing (and eerie) footage of the property as well as dig up some rather fascinating (and disturbing) facts.
