Formerly Norther State Mental Hospital in Sedro-Woolley WA. These photos are some buildings of the dairy farm that was operated by the “patients”... more info on the site and can be found here:

WOW! A self supporting mental facility. Nice. :-)


The Captain and crew finally got their stuff together, now if we can only remember where we left it. :cool:

I've visited that page on Atlas Obscura before; I should have known!

Thanks for clarifying.

Not surprising.
Most of them were, back when they were operating.
They were typically in remote areas, encompassing hundreds or thousands of acres,
set outside of populated areas within lands which were considered to be beautiful
and refreshing.

Around the world, these places grew to house thousands of patients at a time,
and it was necessary to fund them. Some of the ways of funding came from
farming to supply neighboring communities with food, as well as craftmaking
and furniture-making for sale. These efforts often went into supplementing the funding
provided by State budgets, often allowing these institutions to remain operational
when the State was looking to shut them down later on.

In addition to the patient-fueled efforts of crafts and other endeavors to produce revenue,
many/most of these locations also hosted their own powerplants and even railroad terminals
to bring supplies in and ship their products out.

Methods of treatment and design layout varied among the world's societies,
but their sheer size and patient numbers escalated until the late-1950s
when psychotropic drugs and other forms of mental health treatments
began to be recognized and accepted.

These places have a long and storied history, if you're interested in learning about them.

Unfortunately, many of the patients released from these storied places
have found themselves homeless or incarcerated. The penal system across the world
hasn't enough education to properly deal with them, and the rest of society
hasn't the means to properly care for/treat them within today's environments.

At that page, when it first loads there is a shot looking straight on at a building with a peaked roof and large covered “porch” area. Upper part of the building is a sort of teal blue/green color and the roof over the porch is fully covered in moss.

The moss covered roof has since collapsed. I don’t have straight on shot, but this shot is from one side looking under the collapsed roof. Moss covered roofing has all come off as well, leaving the supporting substructure

You've captured the building very well, it looks a lovley buildingthat could be brought back to life. Do you have you any idea what it was used for.

Thank you.

None at all; there were no clues and no one to ask.

Interesting. What was the purpose of the building?
