Following massive silver strikes, Slocan was staked at the lower end of Slocan Lake, south of New Denver in 1892. Initially incorporated as a city in June 1901, it was once a bustling place with 12 hotels. But as the mining boom came to an end, new histories began, including a Japanese-Canadian internment camp during World War II – where world-renowned scientist David Suzuki and author Joy Kogawa were interned. In 1958 Slocan became a village, and now this peaceful community is a gateway to Valhalla Provincial Park and the perfect rest stop for riders along the Silver Triangle Loop. Slocan is a picturesque place with several activities, such as rock climbing, hiking, biking, boating, fishing, and a skate park. See www.slocancity.com.
