Step Back in Time

Nearby New Denver was founded in 1892 by silver miners and reached its economic peak in the early 20th century. By 1920, the mining boom was over, and logging became the main industry. Today, tourism and other businesses have diversified the economy.

During World War II after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the Canadian government sent thousands of Japanese-Canadians to internment camps in the BC Interior. New Denver had a number of abandoned houses from the boom times, and many more smaller dwellings were built to house the 2,000 men, women and children of Japanese origins. Some of these tiny houses still exist today.
