The North Cascades Gateway Center (formerly the Northern State Hospital) is having an open house on September14, 2013. It is from 9 am to 3 pm. There will be walking tours of the campus and the chapel (Hub) will be open for people to go into and photograph. The basement of the hub has been converted into a museum of Northern State Hospital and will be open to view with a video of patients working the fields that was taken by a doctor. We will also have books that were written about Northern State there with their authors. It is free to the public. Questions can be directed to Judy Torfin at (360) 856-3162 or via email at email@example.com.
