The Bellingham Herald reports a 400,000-pound 'acid ball' is moving to its new home on the Bellingham waterfront. The artifact is a remnant of an old pulp and paper mill and will eventually turn into a piece of public art.

KNKX visited the 'acid ball' in 2016. What follows is our original story, published on Dec. 5, 2016.

In Bellingham, a giant work of art will link the city’s industrial past with the future of its waterfront, a place where pulp and paper mills once operated 24 hours a day. The artwork is referred to simply as "The Acid Ball."
