The Village of Salmo is centrally located at the junction of the Crowsnest Highway and Highway 6. Originally known as Salmon Siding, the village was founded as a small mining town during the gold rush of 1896. When dams were created along the Columbia River in the 1960s, fish stocks were depleted and the village found new ways to sustain itself.  Salmo is now an active community with many services and attractions, a vibrant arts community and challenging, fun recreational activities year round.
