PLEASE POST YOUR STORIES ABOUT THIS LOCATION BELOW:



Cascade Job Corps
7782 Northern State Rd
Sedro Woolley, WA 98284

History:
The hospital opened in the fall of 1910 and accepted the first 200 patients in December 1912 through January 1913. Early on, people in the area referred to the hospital as the "Bughouse." Some have interpreted that as a derogatory term however it was an accepted term for an asylum by the time the 1913 Webster's Dictionary was published. Northern State was a key local payroll until it closed in 1973 because of state budget cutbacks.

October 2007: WARNING - There is no trespassing. The police will be called and you will be arrested.

Activity:
- The most common reports of haunting refer to a ghost known as “Fred”, who seems to be the prankster type, enjoys tossing objects about, such as sheet pans that have flown across the room unassisted.
- The nurse’s dorm area has received numerous complaints of an extremely frigid, reoccurring cold spot, even in the dead heat of summer.
- The dorm is also reported to be the home of the apparition of a little girl with a red ball. Claims also state that there is an older, male ghost who is eternally searching for the little girl.
- More disturbing accounts speak of a body hanging in the window of the old nurses station.

My experience was more empathic. I took a girl to tour the place over a decade ago. The grounds looked great. Typical dorm kind of arrangement until we got to the girls bathroom area. I was fine until we walked in, then immediate panic overtook me. I felt pain and intense fear in the area, but it wasn't my own. It was focused near the raised bathtub area. As soon as I left the room, which was quick like, I was fine again, but still shaken from the experience.

Good Morning!

I was a student at this facility in 2003 to 2004 in the cement masonry field. I also was a staff member in the kitchen for weekend and evening shifts.

I was informed of a lot of weird things in that place at my time of stay. I also stayed in the Whitewater dorm which was the first dorm on the block when you entered the campus. A lot of secret passages that were closed up so that the center could have its residency. Every dorm had secret tunnels and the doors had been blocked up so that no one could get in to see. I found out about this while I was in stay there about the secret passages but was told not to talk about it.

I attended job corps 2003-2004 I stayed in evergreen dorm, one weekend I stayed on campus and roommates left . I woke up to something evil holding my wrist and ankles down and I was screaming so loud but no sound would come out almost like my voice was being blocked and in my head I said Jehovah! And my voice came out so loud and I felt like I had all this strength to get off me I literally was fighting for my life it felt, then sudden let go disappear and I stood up turn lights on quick and what was more scary I had marks my rist and ankles and scratches on my shoulder with a bad burning feeling for couple days. I never felt that bad experience again , but within the years I move to two home's and at both hoqme's i seen little girl with red ball in my own two new homes I've brought. I did see her once in my dorm hall but had no bad feeling or felt threatened by her nor did I ever get sick as some people say that she get you sick and I did feel like a strong man was holding me down, I often wonder  if this was male ghost looking  for little girl and maybe seen me as a threat , and now I'm 30 years old  I've seen her in both my homes a friend of mine who is native American walk my home once and said there a little girl with red ball in your home but she means no harm. Any more questions or talk I'm ready to share
