The Slocan Valley Historical Society invites you to visit the village office in Slocan and have a look at the historical artifacts on display there. Regular office hours are Mon-Thurs from 9 to 4. Without a museum, this is one way that we can highlight Slocan’s history.
Display cabinets were installed in Council Chambers at the village office in Slocan. The larger cabinet has a display of mining artifacts, many from the Arlington mine and a second smaller cabinet houses the two silver trophies that call Slocan home.
A second display is planned this summer to highlight the Japanese culture that arrived during WW2 and will coincide with the dedication ceremony on the re-furbished Buddhist Memorial in Slocan.
A visitor’s book is available next to the larger display case to leave your comments and your suggestions for future displays.
If residents have small items they would be willing to lend the Society for a display, they are encouraged to contact the Society at 250.355.2740 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This project was funded in part by the Columbia Basin Trust and Heritage BC through the Built Heritage Grants.
