Sandon Historic Mining Town
In the 1890s, Sandon boomed culturally as a rich source of silver-lead ore. One of Western Canada's densely populated red light districts, the city thrived until a catastrophic fire in 1900 and a wash-out in 1955. Volunteers began working to preserve the landmark in the 1970s and today 60,000 visitors tour Slocan Mercantile Block, Sandon Historical Society Museum, and the Visitor's Centre annually. The internationally significant historic site has become a popular attraction for British Columbia's history.
