Ghost Town of Alice Arm in the News

Global TV Spotlight on the Ghost Town of Alice Arm

This once thriving Silver Mining town Alice Arm of the early 1900’s is home to the Dolly Varden Silver Mine and a dozen or so cabins and homesteads.  It is also one of our stops on the UNBC Continuing Studies “Ghost Towns of Northwest BC” Tour.  Some of the highlights include the 1920 schoolhouse, bakery, haunted houses, old derelict vehicles, polish prison, seafood BBQ, waterfalls, salmon and bears.   Below the video are a few more photos of the town.  For a good read on the history of the town Darryl Muralt’s book “Steel Rails & Silver Dreams” provided an insightful look into the boom and bust times of this silver mining town and the tribulations of building a small railway in some of the most inhospitable conditions.  The town really is a unique pace to visit!
