The Northern State Campus in Sedro-Woolley is recognizing its history over the past 100 years. A museum set up in the HUB building shows photos and equipment from the time the facility was known as Northern Sate Hospital. The public was able to visit the exhibit Saturday as part of the 100 year anniversary celebration.
