Silverton

Silverton

As one of BC’s smallest municipalities in both population and area, the Village of Silverton is located on Highway 6, south of New Denver on the eastern shore of Slocan Lake. It’s history dates back to the accidental discovery of a rich outcrop of galena in 1890. In the height of the silver boom Silverton (incorporated May 6, 1930) experienced the rapid development of six hotels, three general stores, a school, and telephone communications.
