WARFIELD, village, pop 1,739 (2001), lies between ROSSLAND and TRAIL in the W KOOTENAY, not far from the US border. Site of an early SAWMILL established by George Merry, it later housed the employees of COMINCO's fertilizer plant, which was located here, and absorbed the neighbouring settlement of Annable, which also had a sawmill. It is named for Carlos Warfield, an associate of F.A. HEINZE, who built the SMELTER at Trail in 1895, and it is essentially a suburb of Trail.
