New Heritage Mural in Bellingham

> 1890's operating room at St Joseph 2 young nuns were invited to Bellingham to start a hospital, it was a lonely road. 1920's nurse in Fairhaven The sisters had a small dairy at the hospital for patients Running to the ER. There's a lot of great historic material to work with for the new Heritage Mural at Peacehealth, St Joseph Medical Center in Bellingham. The Whatcom Museum has extensive photo archives. The space inside the hospital is 70 feet long. My design will tell the story of healthcare in Bellingham, starting in 1890's with the 2 sisters that came out west and sold tickets for the hospital they wanted to start.
