The following article was written by - Greg Nesteroff - Apr. 21, 2017 for the Rossland News - Shields, on the former Columbia and Western Railway, 21.5 km west of Castlegar, was formerly known as Shield’s Landing and Shields Station. It was first mentioned in the Midway Advance of Nov. 29, 1897: “With the exception of ten miles, the distance between Robson and Shield’s landing, the survey [of the railway] is completed from the Columbia river to Penticton.” Shields was an important camp during the railway’s construction. Later it was a flag and water stop. It has a few potential namesakes. According to Frederick W. Laing’s place names file at the BC Archives, “Robert, Jim, and George Shiell were generally spoken of as ‘Shields.’ They were prospectors and frontier men who ultimately settled at Needles.” LINK to the complete article - www.rosslandnews.com/community/place-names-shields-shirle...
