Sandon town in the Kootenay region of British Columbia.

Sandon is a ghost town in the Kootenay region of British Columbia, Canada. Once the unofficial capital of the mining region known as the “Silvery Slocan”, only some of it remains standing.

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.
