Search New Denver British Columbia

The Sandon Historical Society's Museum in the historic silver-mining ghost town of Sandon, British Columbia, Canada. Over the past 110 years over $35 billion worth of galena ore (silver, lead and zinc) has been wrested from the towering mountains around Sandon, as fortunes and reputations were built. From mining history to railroad wars; from a hydro-electic generating dynamo to crusading pioneer journalism; from aerial tramlines that were engineering marvels to the WW II-era internment of Japanese-Canadians, Sandon and area is a living visit to Canada's and North America's exciting past.
