We visited the ghost town of Sandon and found it very interesting! We loved the old buildings and buses. There is even an old steam train you can look at. We went into the powerhouse to see the historic hydro-electric plant. It still generates power to multiple towns in the area! Very cool! This was a nice day trip from... 更多
The museum, for where and what it is, is quite fantastic. A lot of the same sort of artifacts you'll find at most small town museums in BC, but what really did it for me were the photographs, newspapers, and books saved from Sandon when it flourished. Those brought it to life for me. Also loved the basement. Very eerie.
When we went the manager of the museum decided to close early and essentially told everyone to leave. I have heard good reports about the museum and was disappointed to say the least about his attitude. The young man running the shop in Sandon and the gentleman manning the hydroelectric exhibition were friendly and very knowledgable though and so made... 更多
We had a wonderful time at the museum. As if the setting, building, artifacts and atmosphere wasn't enough, Andrew Rhodes was there to bring it alive! Andrew is the resident interpreter/guide for the summer season (2016) and welcomes you in a very down to earth jocular manner. He delivers probably the most entertaining, but factual description of Sandon I have... 更多
We were sooo pleased to find the Meusuem open on this visit to Sandon. The local staff were very well informed about the Rich History of Sandon...we really appreciated their insight. The entire town itself is really a wonderful experience to explore. Make sure you allow for enough time to really take in all that Sandon has to offer.. including... 更多
You can drive here fairly easily, we pulled a 27' trailer there. You need to bring your own accommodations if you are staying overnight. There's a coffee shop, if you do need something to eat. It is a dirt road but was graded when we traveled there. There is a fellow that claims to be the Mayor, not sure if... 更多
Sandon is located just east of the town of New Denver along BC-31A and about 3 miles back an unpaved, but relatively smooth road easily accessible on a motorcycle. The Sandon historic society is trying very hard to make this a destination. It is called a "ghost town", but there really is very little left there. Don't expect to see... 更多
This place has a lot of history and makes for a cute little stop but there are a lot more interesting places that could be visited. There are a bunch of old buses lined up from Downtown Vancouver, which seemed a little bit random, but they were cool to see. We didn't have time to go in the museum, but... 更多
Sandon was a rip-snorting town of 5,000+ people around 1900, with two competing railway companies competing to transport the area's silver riches. Yet today little remains except a few buildings, the power-plant, and this museum. An interesting look at the boom-and-bust history of mining in the area.
If you want to learn about the mining towns of the Kootenays, Sandon is one of those gems to visit, You can learn about the fires and floods that ruined the community, visit the power station and climb up Idaho Peak. It is worth the bumpy ride on the road to Sandon
