At the height of the 19th century mining boom, people flocked to this valley by the thousands. Sandon, a boomtown built in the narrow valley of Carpenter Creek was, in 1900, one of the largest communities in the Pacific Northwest.
Today, the largest centre in the valley is New Denver with a population of 504.
