Sandon is located in the Selkirk Mountains, about ten kilometers east of the town of New Denver BC. Currently, Sandon features a few buildings, a fleet of trolley buses, and a handful of residents. Both railways that served the town have been dismantled and turned into hiking trails, leaving only traces of a rich mining history. There is a museum run by the Sandon Historical Society in the old mercantile building. 20,000 visitors come to Sandon yearly.
