Port of Skagit staff led the Skagit Valley Herald on a walk Oct. 17 through the former Northern State Hospital at the SWIFT Center in Sedro-Woolley. The historic buildings were flanked by fall foliage and stand in a state of disrepair the port and redevelopment partners hope over time to change. Pictured is the inside of the Denny Building — which was the main hospital — including empty patient wards, the surgery room and the meal preparation space. Also pictured is the exterior of the Hub Building and what was once the nurses quarters.
