The Town of Field, British Columbia

The town of Field, British ColumbiaThe town of Field, British Columbia is located between Lake Louise, AB and Golden, BC in the heart of Yoho National Park and offers plenty opportunity for outdoor recreation enthusiasts and those who just want a quiet place to relax.

Field was established during the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway as a locomotive depot for pusher engines required to help trains over the nearby Field Hill. The town was given its name by the CPR in December 1884 to honour American businessman Cyrus West Field, who was instrumental in establishing trans-atlantic telegraph service. Despite the CPR's best efforts to win an investment from Cyrus Field, by naming the village and Mount Field in his honour, he never did invest.

It is home to 300 inhabitants, The Burgess Shale Geoscience Foundation and numerous small B&B’s, hotels and guesthouses as well as eating establishments, gifts and a general store. The community is also home to many artisans whose work can be found in the village. Visit for more information.
