History

Slocan.” It’s an Indigenous term that means to pierce, or to strike, referring to the way in which you strike at a salmon.

Silver strikes would lead to the establishment of Slocan near a number of ore-producing sites.

Slocan would soon become a hub of activity at the south tip of Slocan Lake, as people roamed saloons and hotels, and a railway brought miners, and the minerals they dug out of the ground.
