Slocan

Slocan

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.
