First Hospital in Sumas, WA - 1900

First hospital in Sumas, WA located off the Rock Road, S.E.
Circa 1900

Since this was the closest medical facility Canadians would cross the border for any treatments and care.  Until the lake was drained and transportation was more direct,  this was the main hospital.
