Miners, dreamers and schemers flocked to this remote valley between Kaslo and New Denver, and by 1897, Sandon had become a boom town of 5,000. But when the silver ran out, so did the town’s luck; it was quickly abandoned and, in 1955, a flash flood demolished many of its buildings.
Today, this ghost town’s fascinating story is chronicled in a museum located in the historic Slocan Mercantile General Store.
Open daily June 1st to mid October, 10 am to 5 pm.
